Report from the 2015 Acute Cardiovascular Care Association Congress

"Innovating to Improve Acute Cardiovascular Care" was the theme for the Annual conference of the European Society of Cardiology Acute Cardiovascular Care Association 2015 in Vienna



Last year's annual conference of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA) was held in the monumental and imperial surroundings of the Vienna Hofburg from 17 to 19 October, 2015 under the main topic ‘Innovating to Improve Acute Cardiovascular Care’. The ACCA's mission is to improve quality of care and outcomes of patients with acute cardiovascular diseases. Focus is the multi-disciplinary team taking care of the acutely ill patient ranging from pre- and in-hospital stabilization to definitive therapy within the hospital walls.

Therefore, the ACCA addresses not only cardiologists but also emergency physicians, paramedics, interventional cardiologists, intensivists, and surgeons, respectively. The multi-disciplinary approach of the association was evidenced by 10 so-called joint sessions with national and international associations and working groups.

 

Programme highlights

The 4th annual ACCA conference offered a multifaceted programme range of classic symposia, ‘meet-the-experts’ sessions, ‘pro and con’ debates, and ‘how-to’ sessions covering the multi-disciplinary approach of the association when dealing with acutely ill cardiac patients.
