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 through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Improving the quality of life and reducing sudden cardiac death by limiting the impact of heart rhythm disturbances.
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.
The Congress main theme this year is "Working together for acute cardiovascular patients"
The scientific programme comprises various styles of presentations and sessions, each offering a unique opportunity to amass new and important scientific information. Descriptions of the presentation and session types appear below.
These sessions allow for in-depth discussions on developments and advances in the various fields of acute cardiovascular care – these sessions are structured around four to five presentations by experts.
Discussions with experts, around cases and latest research & publications, who will explain difficulties, pitfalls and limitations whilst putting the results in perspective.
Provide practical, informative material and have a great educational value. Sessions focused on demonstration of techniques and practices by experts.
Daily practice oriented sessions: speakers will give educational presentations to be followed by intense discussions on controversial issues.
Speakers will take you through their experience of challenging cases – would you have made the same choices and decisions? A great session for interaction on practical case management.
Organised by the Young ACCA committee, this series of sessions is aimed towards young physicians and researchers. Enhance your knowledge with experts who will take you from the fundamentals to the latest updates in acute cardiovascular care.
This track is an opportunity for practicing cardiologists wanting to refresh their skills.
Experts will take you through live demonstrations and hands-on training to learn and apply the latest methods and practice.
To address topics directly with the experts, we are co-organising Joint Sessions with International, European and Local Associations. These sessions help to strengthen collaboration between ACCA and our partners in the field.
Scientists and clinicians are invited to submit their un-published research in the area of acute cardiovascular care with a focus on quality of care research, clinical outcomes research and translational research applied to the development of novel therapeutic, diagnostic and logistical strategies to improve patient care and long-term outcomes.
