Implementing prevention strategies at National level

The role of National CVD Prevention Coordinators

This year, 57 National CVD Prevention Coordinators have been appointed by the Presidents of National Cardiac Societies in 48 ESC member countries. Find your country’s coordinator!

With the launch of the European Guidelines on CVD Prevention in Clinical Practice (version 2012) at EuroPRevent in Dublin,  National CVD Prevention Coordinators (NCPC) will have an increasingly important role to play in the field of preventive cardiology: to contribute to an effective implementation of the European Guidelines at a national level.

They will work closely with the ESC National Guidelines Coordinators and the National Cardiac Societies to build national multi-disciplinary professional alliances and establish contact with local Health Authorities to promote CVD prevention on the political agenda.

How do they contribute to national prevention strategies?

By building a national multi-disciplinary group, involving both health professionals and policy makers (National societies and organizations active in the field of CVD prevention; Senior representatives of national departments of health, health services...)

By working actively with the health authorities to promote the implementation of the “European Heart Health Charter” initiative in-country.

By coordinating the development of CVD Prevention tools at national level, for example by contributing to the development, adaptation and promotion of country-specific or translated version of HeartScore® and negotiating CME accreditation of these tools at national level.

By acting as a direct and privileged contact with the EACPR for national implementation strategies and report on achievements on an annual basis.
