Program Overview

The series described in this program are organized by the Heart Rhythm Society's Scientific Sessions Program Committee and volunteer groups.

Program Description

HRS 2020 Science focuses on the intersections of technology, medicine, ideas, and people that will shape the future of heart rhythm care.

HRS 2020 Science brings together the world's most noted experts in heart rhythm disorders. Physicians, allied healthcare professionals, and scientists can network and explore the latest education and technology aimed at advancing this dynamic field and improving patient care.

Learning Objectives

After completion of HRS 2020 Science, participants will be able to:

  • Identify and analyze the latest scientific advances and innovations in the field of heart rhythm disorders.
  • Select appropriate, evidence-directed pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to achieve optimal outcomes for patients with heart rhythm disorders.
  • Recognize alternative perspectives regarding areas of controversy for which scientific evidence is insufficient, controversial or confusing.
Target Audience

This activity is designed for all professionals who participate in the care and management of heart rhythm disorders.

Accreditation Information

Accreditation Statement
The Heart Rhythm Society is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

HRS 2020 Science: May Release

Physicians AMA Designation Statement
The Heart Rhythm Society designates this internet enduring activity for a maximum of 9.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

ABIM MOC
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 9.75 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

ABP MOC
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the activity, with individual assessments of the participant and feedback to the participant, enables the participant to earn up to 9.75 MOC points in the American Board of Pediatrics’ (ABP) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABP MOC credit.

Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada MOC Recognition Statement
Through an agreement between the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, medical practitioners participating in the Royal College MOC Program may record completion of accredited activities registered under the ACCME’s "CME in Support of MOC" program in Section 3 of the Royal College’s MOC Program.

Other Credit Available
A Credit Certificate (for physicians) or Certificate of Participation (for non-physicians) will be provided to individuals seeking credit from the following organizations which accept AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Note that participants are advised to contact their certifying body for specific information regarding credit submissions:

Disclosure Policy

The Heart Rhythm Society is committed to the provision of Continuing Medical Education (CME) that is balanced, objective, and evidence-based. The Heart Rhythm Society adheres to the Standards for Commercial Support (SCS) of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) which requires that those individuals in a position to control the content of an educational activity (including planners, faculty, authors, committee members, content reviewers, editors, and staff) disclose all relevant financial relationships (for self and for spouse/partner) with an ACCME-defined commercial interest within the 12 months prior to the disclosure.

Content Validation

Heart Rhythm Society takes steps to assure its learners and the public that the content of certified activities is accurate and reliable. The following principles are applied to the process of validating CME content. The content is peer-reviewed to ensure the following:

Fair Balance: that content is balanced among various options available for treatment and not biased toward a particular product or manufacturer.

Patient Treatment Recommendations: that patient treatment recommendations contained in the content are evidence-based, are appropriate for the target audience, and that the patient treatment recommendations contribute to overall improvement in patient care.

Scientific Validity: that scientific studies cited in the activity conform to standards accepted by the scientific community.

Learning Objectives: that the educational content supports the learning objectives of the activity, and that the objectives stated for performance-in-practice are actionable and measurable.

Omission: that no seminal studies, data, or best evidence are missing.

Claiming Credit

Upon completion of the activity on HRS365, learners will be required to complete an evaluation form before claiming CME credit or MOC points on HRS365.
