‘Strongest scientific programme yet’ for ESC Congress 2014

'The ESC Congress has become the dominant scientific and educational forum in cardiology,' says Professor Keith Fox, chair of the Congress Programme Committee. 'It’s the place where the most innovative clinical and basic science studies get presented. That our meeting is now the number one international event in cardiology is underlined by higher-than-ever numbers of submissions from non-European countries.' Read more

Preventive cardiology – a major challenge: Reports from Latvia and Lithuania

"This month, Latvia and Lithuania are being added to the prevention map of Europe.  With a cardiovascular risk burden and mortality still among the highest in Europe, preventive cardiology undoubtedly remains a major challenge!  Read the country reports of the National CVD Prevention Coordinators and be inspired by their hard work to win the battle against premature cardiac death.”
Joep Perk, EACPR Prevention Implementation Committee Chair

Mission: To promote the essential knowledge of population prevention science among cardiologists, other clinicians, health care professionals and scientists, to stress their role in the community context and to improve their understanding of the importance of the epidemiology and primary prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
 
This section fits well within the Association as an extension of cardiac rehabilitation. A network already exists and sports cardiology is recognized as a sub-speciality. It is connected with primary and secondary prevention.
 
Mission: to promote and facilitate high-quality research and education related to exercise, basic and translational science in the fields of cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation and sports cardiology, bringing together scientists from a broad range of disciplines.
 
Cardiac Rehabilitation is a secondary prevention programme, with exercise as the cornerstone of a comprehensive intervention which includes an educational programme, risk factors control and the patient’s voluntarily adoption of a healthy lifestyle to be kept for lifetime.
