FAQs

Registration

When will online registration close?

We have extended online registration until Wednesday 14 October 2020 due to the high demand for access to BSEcho 2020. Please note that registrations completed after 5.00 pm on Friday 2 October 2020 may lead to delays in your access to the virtual conference platform, but we hope to complete all registrations by at least the next working day. 

How much will registration cost?

Member registration starts at £35 per session. Registration for the full conference is available at the discounted rate of £150.

Non-member registration starts at £45 per session. Registration for the full conference is available at the discounted rate of £200.

How can I pay for my registration?

Registration through the website will accept VISA or Mastercard. Unfortunately we are not able to accept payments via American Express at this time.

Invoice registration is now closed.

Can I add additional sessions after the conference has started?

Please call 0208 065 5797 and we will do our best to amend your booking. Outside of office hours, email [email protected] with your contact telephone number and a member of the team will give you a call to book you on. Please note that late changes may lead to delayed access to the conference platform.

What is your cancellation policy?

No refunds will be offered for cancellations made after Thursday 1 October 2020. Registration is non-transferable to any other participant or event.

Can we watch as a group?

It is possible to watch the presentations as a group, and we recognise the additional learning opportunities that this will provide, especially if watching as a department.

Please be aware that only the logged in delegate will be able to obtain BSE points for watching. Each delegate must be registered and must have logged in to watch any sessions they wish to claim points for.

Why will my information be passed to the Production Bureau?

The Production Bureau are supplying us with their services to run our virtual conference platform. Only the relevant information will be passed to them and this will be done in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Content

What types of content will be available for the virtual conference?

You'll have access to video and live content, as well as PDF resources to support your learning.

View the programme

How long will I have access to the content?

The presentations will be available on the conference platform from Monday 5 - Friday 16 October 2020. During this time, you'll be able to obtain BSE points for viewing the scheduled sessions, although once they've been published, you can watch whenever you want!

From Monday 19 October 2020, members will be able to access the presentations on our website.

How can I take study leave when the sessions are at different times?

If you're worried about study leave, please talk to whoever signs this off for you. An option could be to take two days study leave the week after the live conference (before Friday 16 October 2020) and watch all of the presentations then.

Do I have to watch the sessions live?

No, you don't - we want you to be able to watch when it works for you. After the session has been broadcast live, it will be available on demand the following day. However, to obtain BSE points you'll have to watch them before Friday 16 October 2020.

What do I need to access the content?

All you will need is your computer and a stable and reliable internet connection.

Please note that we cannot guarantee access from NHS devices due to individual organisational firewalls over which we have no control.

Will I be able to watch on a mobile device?

The conference platform is fully mobile responsive, however as you're watching presentations with detailed slides, you'll get the best experience on a larger screen.

How many BSE points will I get for attending the conference?

Each live session is worth 2 BSE category I points, for a maximum of 12 for attendance at the full virtual conference.

You can only get BSE points between Monday 5 - Friday 16 October 2020, while the content is on the virtual conference platform.

I don't collect BSE points - what are my options?

BSEcho 2020 is approved by the Federation of the Royal College of Physicians UK for 12 external (category 1) CPD credits.

BSEcho 2020 is endorsed by the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging and 12 credits can be put towards EACVI reaccreditation.

How will my BSE/CPD points be collected?

We are able to track your viewing through the conference platform. After you've watched the session, no further action is required.

Will I get a certificate?

Certificates will be issued by the end of October by email.

How do I access the additional tracks?

All of the additional tracks will be available on the conference platform for the duration of the conference. These tracks do not have BSE points allocated, however they will augment your conference learning.
