Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to disseminate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care.
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission is to promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death.
Our mission is to improve quality of life and longevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
The ESC Working Groups' goal is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
The ESC Councils' goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
The ESC is bringing together its sub-specialty expertise in prevention and rehabilitation, acute cardiovascular care and cardiovascular nursing to promote effective prevention both among those with risk factors as well as those that survived a clinical event. Through this programme, you have a unique opportunity to access educational resources and tools!
Though this programme, we have produced Key recommendations on secondary prevention post MI based on a literature review, issued a summary report from the Health Professional Survey conducted to identify perceived barriers to implementation, and published a consensus document on the Challenges in secondary prevention after acute myocardial infarction (European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, published online on 7 Sept 2016)
A supplement of the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology covering the essentials of secondary prevention is in preparation. (to be published in 2017)

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is the world’s number one killer, accounting for 1 in 5 deaths in Europe
Without effective treatment of risk and risk factors, the immediate mortality after an acute event increases with a further rise in patients dying in the subsequent year
In those who survive an initial post-MI period, an increased risk of death from cardiovascular causes persists indefinitely
Reducing morbidity and mortality among post-myocardial infarction and other patients at high risk of subsequent event require the implementation of effective prevention measures
Evidence shows an increase in risk factor awareness in developing countries, but a decrease in developing countries – this issue is a global problem
Guidelines targets are achievable: Evidence shows that effective secondary prevention measures outlined in clinical practice Guidelines can significantly reduce the risk of a subsequent cardiovascular event
There is a need and room for improvement!
The ESC Prevention of CVD Programme is led by the European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC) in collaboration with the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA) and the ESC Council on Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professions (CCNAP). The programme is being rolled out in three phases:
Benefits And Challenges of Secondary Prevention After Myocardial Infarction By Comprehensive Rehabilitation Programmes (Hasselt/Bern)
Challenges In Secondary Prevention After Myocardial Infarction
