Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to dissemintate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission: To promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our goal is to reduce the burden in cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our Mission is "to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death"
To improve quality of life and logevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
Working Groups goals is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
ESC Councils goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
The study group on biomarkers was part of the Working Group on Acute Cardiac Care of the European Society of Cardiology(ESC) and was integrated into the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA) in August 2012.The study group has been restructured in April 2013.
Founded by Prof. Kristian Thygesen, and now chaired by Prof. Bertil Lindhal, this group of experts is focusing on the proper clinical application of cardiac biomarkers including troponins, natriuretic peptides, and inflammatory and thrombotic markers in acute cardiac care.
Study group leadership:
Bertil Lindhal , Chair - (SW)
Kristian Thygesen, (study group founder), Past–Chair - (DE)
Study group members:Alan Jaffe - USA Christian Mueller - CHJohannes Mair - ATKurt Huber - ATMartin Moeckel - GE Evangelos Giannitsis - GEMario Plebani - IT
The event organised by Radiometer Medical Aps and supported by ACCA provided an opportunity to hear some of the most prominent names in the field of cardiac biomarker testing deliver an insight into the latest advances in this critical sector, and how they have been successful.View Webcasts HERE
In addition, the study group will be engaged in several other educational activities during the next two years.Supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Radiometer, Roche Diagnostics International Ltd & Ortho Clinical Diagnostics:
