Nursing / Allied Professional Investigator Award

The European Society of Cardiology is pleased to honour a certain number of individuals in recognition of their outstanding achievements.

The ESC Council on Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professions (CCNAP) is committed to professional growth of new investigators in cardiovascular nursing and allied professions. The number of PhD prepared cardiovascular nurses and allied professionals is growing in Europe, and the Nursing / Allied Professional Investigator Award aims to recognize the outstanding contribution of these investigators in understanding, preventing and treating cardiovascular diseases. This was the first award to be established in cardiovascular nursing and allied professions at a European level. It is in honour of one of the founders and first chair of the former ESC Working Group on Cardiovascular Nursing, Atie Immink.

Note in your agenda next abstract submission for ESC Congress: early December to 14 February 2017 (midnight, CET)
