The Pfizer situation room is an opportunity for an interactive, case-based discussion that allows for peer-to-peer learning. It brings together a group of health care practitioners to share their clinical experience and insights with their peers based on a simple clinical scenario. Pfizer wants to maximize natural interactive discussion in small group discussions about "case-based management of atrial fibrillation and VTE in the primary care setting." They want to hear from you! Please sign up for the exciting opportunity but remember space is limited, so if you do not plan on attending, please cancel your registration.
