These sessions encourage a spontaneous discussion of a difficult clinical case. The case is presented by a speaker who raises a few key questions. Three experts give their opinion on the best diagnosis/treatment options and discuss the case among themselves as physicians often do in their daily practice (without any slides). The case is not previously known by any of the discussants. The speaker’s role is to ensure a lively conversation and cover the various approaches, as well as to involve the audience in the conversation.
THE DEBATE SESSION
The purpose of the debate is to have an intense discussion on some of the most burning controversies related to a specific topic. The two sides of the debate will be defended by two leading experts in the field, and the discussion will be controlled by a moderator whose role is to ensure that all aspects of the debate are duly discussed, as well as to involve the audience in the conversation.
