The mission of the Council for Cardiology Practice has been modified to: "Improve the standard of care in the clinical cardiology practice of office-based general cardiologists".
After long discussions, adjustments and modifications, the Council Nucleus has reached a new definition regarding its mission and audience.
The Council for Cardiology Practice was created in 2000 to gather cardiologists working in private practice. Across the years, the Council welcomed new countries with different healthcare systems. Among them, colleagues working in an out-of-hospital setting, which was not ‘fully private’, with some kind of reimbursement directly or indirectly paid by the National Heart Service, became preponderant. The qualifying aspects of the cardiologists in practice are:
So the Council decided to modify slightly but essentially its mission, insisting less on the ‘private’ aspect and more on the profession.
The Council proposed these changes to the ESC Board and after many prolific discussions and corrections came up with a new definition of our mission statement.
So we, as general cardiologists, should not 'know everything about something’, but ‘know something about everything’.
This will be our commitment over the next years.
