Updates for lifelong learning and professional development

The Acute CardioVascular Care Association strongly believes in the education of healthcare professionals as part of lifelong learning, but also including those who are early in their career.


The congress will provide education and discussion for the next generation of clinicians and researchers, working alongside experts in the field, with the aim to promote the dissemination of knowledge and improve patient outcomes.

Education is a key mission for the Acute CardioVascular Care Association – forming one of the main pillars of the ESC.
