eLearning, professional unity and accreditation among new ESC President’s top priorities

Fausto Pinto, who became President of the ESC today, says plans to strengthen the accreditation systems in cardiology, the ESC eLearning platform and the role of the Society in Brussels will be high on his agenda:  'Why should patients accept treatment by doctors unless they’ve the confidence in knowing they’ve achieved pre-defined levels of proficiency.'

ESC introduces five new practice guidelines, with a range of tools for everyday application

This year's ESC Congress will see the launch of five new ESC Guidelines: Non-Cardiac Surgery, Acute Pulmonary Embolism, Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, Aortic Diseases and Myocardial Revascularization.  The guidelines were developed by expert Task Forces under the governance of the ESC’s Committee for Practice Guidelines. All in all, more than 100 experts are involved in the development of each one.   Read more & access the Guidelines

Far-reaching programme of ESC Registries

Since its introduction in 2008 the ESC’s registry programme - known as the EURObservational Research Programme, or EORP - has grown from just two pilot surveys (both in heart failure) to a broad-ranging and far-reaching programme of 13 registries arranged within the categories of ‘General’, ‘Sentinel’, ‘Special’ and ‘Prevention’ (the last of which now includes both arms, hospital and primary care, of the latest round of the Euroaspire data collection and analysis).

The ESC Congress is an international event that is recognised as the largest cardiology meeting in the world.
The next event will take place in 2014 in Barcelona, Spain:
