Patient meetings

 

Arrhythmia Alliance and our member organisations hold meetings each year specifically for patients. The focus is education; providing opportunities for patients to learn about conditions and treatment options from both each other and medical professionals.

 

The single biggest patient event each year is Patients Day of the annual Heart Rhythm Congress

 

Arrhythmia Alliance Patients Day aims to bring together patients, carers and medical professionals to learn from each other and share experiences of living with arrhythmias.
