EP Wire is a picture of daily EP practice in Europe through online surveys, an initiative from Prof Carina Blomstrom Lundqvist, Chair of the Initiatives Committee.
Guidelines & recommendations on EP practice are usually drawn from the results of multicenter trials. However, these trials are often conducted in selected centres under special conditions . In contrast, daily practice is generally influenced by many factors different to those strictly scientific.

The idea of the EP wire is to send the centers part of the Research Network short surveys about your practice on a specific EP topic. The results of each survey will be published in EP-Europace Journal in a section called EP Wire.

Would your centre like to join the network?


As part of the Research Network Partners list, your center is entitled to participate in the EP WIRE SURVEYS.
