What is an EP Wire Survey ?

An EP Wire is a picture of daily EP practice in Europe through online surveys and its aim is to have a global vision of what is going on among European countries with regards to their adaptation to guidelines, their use and access to devices or ablation procedures, their management of patients with various arrhythmias, and use of diagnostic tools.

The idea of the EP wire is to send to centers who are part of the Research Network a short survey (12 to 15 questions maximum) questioning their practice on a specific EP topic.


Join the Network and Participate in the EP Wire Surveys

The results of these surveys enable us to gather some valuable and essential information, thanks to the participating centers who regularly complete the surveys and entrust us with their data.

The results of each survey are published in the EP Europace Journal in a section called “EP Wire” and your centre's participation will be acknowledged in an appendix section of the journal and on the EHRA website (should you have agreed to before).

More over, the 2 best replying centres to the last surveys will be offered the co-authorship of the article published in the EP Europace Journal.
