I regret to inform you that Acute Cardiovascular Care 2020, scheduled for 7-9 March, could not take place as planned.

As you have no doubt seen in the news, the novel coronavirus (COVID–19) has been spreading in Europe. It means that many of you were prevented from travelling because of restrictions imposed by your national health authorities or your individual medical institutions. Although deeply disappointing, we could not proceed with the congress or with the scheduled exams to be held on site.

Your health and safety are of the greatest priority to us. You have a vital role to play throughout the year but especially now, during the spread of the coronavirus. Most of the reported deaths from COVID-19 have been in patients with underlying cardiovascular disease.

Check the FAQ webpage to get answers to your questions.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Susanna Price,
Association for Acute CardioVascular Care
President 2018 - 2020
