ESC Council on Hypertension


 

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The ESC Council on Hypertension was established in 2014 to provide education, research and leadership in the field of hypertension of behalf of the ESC. The Council is managed by a small nucleus board but the involvement of the Council membership is also important.

Membership of the Council is free and is growing rapidly. It is particularly pleasing to see members from all parts of the world and increasing numbers of younger members. As Chairman of the Council I will be communicating with the membership on a regular basis to update on the various ways in which members can become engaged in the work of the Council. The Council is active in a number of areas, including; the development of the next version of the ESC/ESH guidelines on hypertension; writing position papers and consensus statements on many aspects of hypertension management – often in partnership with other ESC Councils and Associations; developing the programme for the hypertension sessions for ESC Congress; developing stand-alone educational meetings and forming partnerships with other hypertension societies in Europe and globally, to develop joint initiatives. We also produce a regular newsletter for members and wish to increase the flow of useful information from our website in the coming months. One has to only see the packed auditoriums in the hypertension village at the ESC annual congress to appreciate that there is still a very strong appetite to learn more about hypertension as a key discipline within cardiovascular medicine.


It is my honour to Chair the ESC Council on Hypertension and working with experienced colleagues in the Council nucleus board and the wider membership, our aim is for the ESC Council on Hypertension to be recognised as a respected authorative voice in hypertension research, education and clinical practice.


With my best wishes,
