Building on the outstanding success of 2020’s inaugural event, Rhythm Interventions Online (RIO) 2021 will deliver the highest quality CME-accredited learning over three days.

With an interactive programme that will reflect the very latest tips, tricks and technologies, the aim of RIO 2021 is, conversely, one of continuity: the continue to provide you, the healthcare professional, with stimulating virtual sessions to educate, challenge, and best support optimal outcomes in patient care.

Central to RIO’s philosophy is for all sessions to again be free-to-access, providing a platform for the widest dissemination of live case procedures, expert opinions and best-in-class presentations and discussion.
