About the Congress

EuroHeartCare 2020, 4-6 June, Seville


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 FAQ.

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.

Welcome address

EuroHeartCare 2020 is the only conference of its kind in Europe, leading the way in bringing together nurses and allied professions from across all core specialities within cardiology, with the shared aim to support the best possible care to people affected by (or at risk of) cardiovascular disease, their families and communities more widely.

EuroHeartCare 2020’s programme has been carefully designed to provide education and training in a dynamic and engaging format with dedicated tracks providing practical guidance on how to perform procedures, implement guidelines and deliver high quality clinical care as well as expose its audience to cutting-edge scientific advances. The nursing and multidisciplinary management of complex multimorbidity, frailty and implementation of latest advances in interventional, pharmacological and preventive care strategies feature strongly. Other key highlights include person centred care, digital health and special sessions enhancing the audience’s pivotal role in supporting patient self-management and adherence to treatment.

This congress promises to stimulate discussions amongst clinicians and scientists, provide mentorship to our young community and ultimately provide an international forum that drives advances in cardiovascular care.

On behalf of the Association of Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professionals Board and the Scientific Programme Congress Committee, we look forward to welcoming you in Seville for EuroHeartCare 2020.
