ESC Working Group Cardiovascular Pharmacology and Drug Therapy Chair Kjeldsen
Pharmacology is an increasingly important aspect of most disciplines within cardiology. Thus, we are an important contributor to the ESC at most levels. We work with all aspects of cardiovascular pharmacology: From basic pharmacology over clinical trials to clinical pharmacology. We focus on trials sciences, e.g. how to plan and conduct trials and how to evaluate evidence gained, on polypharmacy, e.g. on the heart patient receiving numerous drugs for various diseases, and on sudden cardiac death, i.e. how to prevent and avoid inducing sudden cardiac death by pharmacotherapy.
