COVID-19 (coronavirus)

It is with great regret that we must inform you that EuroHeartCare 2020, the annual scientific congress of the Association of Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professions (ACNAP), scheduled for 4-6 June in Seville, is cancelled. Fortunately, we have been able to secure the same venue for EuroHeartCare 2021 from 17 to 19 June in Seville, Spain.

The ESC and ACNAP leaderships have been closely following the rapid spread of COVID-19 and its impact on healthcare professionals and particularly our community who are front line actors in this battle.

As you are aware, increasingly severe measures are being put in place to limit the spread of the virus as health systems deal with the pandemic. As such, 38% of our congress faculty, have already cancelled their participation in EuroHeartCare – and that number will only grow. In addition, Spain’s authorities have imposed a nationwide lockdown to fight the sharp rise in infections and it is unclear how the situation will evolve over the coming weeks.

As a result of these factors and our responsibility to protect the health of our faculty, delegates and staff, the ACNAP board decided that cancelling the congress was the only responsible course of action. Should you have any queries, please refer to the Q&A.

On behalf of the ACNAP Executive Board and the Congress Chair, Dr. Jennifer Jones, we thank you for your understanding and convey our heartfelt wishes to you, your families and your patients in these difficult times.

ACNAP President 2018-2020
