The meeting will take place at Crieff Hydro Hotel on Thursday 21 and Friday 22 November 2019.

SHARP has been working to prevent vascular disease in Scotland for over 30 years and this year’s meeting will review past successes, present and future challenges in preventing vascular disease.

Delegates are invited to join the Scottish Lipid Forum at their annual meeting on the Thursday morning. After lunch, the SHARP meeting will commence with a keynote speaker followed by the symposium, sponsored by Napp on ‘Diabetes and Cardio/Renal axis: Changing practice in Type 2 Diabetes.’ The Gala dinner on the Thursday evening promises to be a truly memorable occasion.

The scientific programme, which continues on the Friday, will address small vessel disease, obesity and cardiovascular risk factors in inflammatory arthritis. Interactive workshops will look at the work of cholesterol, funny rhythms, murmurs, hypoperfusion and the National Hypertension Enquiry which looks into the inquiry process, evidence collation and key recommendations.

After the presentation of the SHARP prizes, Professor Christian Delles from Glasgow University will conclude with the keynote lecture on “Hypertension – a walk in the park or a SPRINT to the finishing line? New evidence, new targets, old concerns.

Professor Delles is quite happy to build cases into his talk. If you have any key questions, please get in touch with SHARP sharp@dundee.ac.uk. Professor Delles wishes to make his presentation relevant to practitioners and he would be delighted to consider your questions.
