A workshop with a multidisciplinary approach to stroke prevention and treatment.
Registration is now open.
In 2016, the European Society of Cardiology created the ESC Council on Stroke as a multidisciplinary constituent body to promote the interdisciplinary cooperation, education, research on stroke with the ultimate goal of reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe. Without interdisciplinary cooperation, successful stroke prevention, treatment and aftercare would not be possible.
More than 26% of the 1000+ Council members are not cardiologists - they are specialists from other disciplines including internal medicine, neurology, cardiac surgery, vascular surgery, neurosurgery, radiology, intensive care medicine, basic science etc. The Council on Stroke aims to bridge the gap between clinical and scientific specialties and perspectives and therefore proposes an Educational Workshop on Stroke with this aim of improving interdisciplinary cooperation.
The goal of this ESC Heart & Brain Workshop is to bring together leading experts in the field of stroke and cardiologists, neurologists, radiologists, surgeons and other specialists to learn from each other. The main ambition of this workshop is the multidisciplinary view – speakers will be neurologists, cardiologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons, epidemiologists, pharmacotherapists etc.
The first edition of this workshop is designed for cardiologists but also for neurologists, radiologists, vascular surgeons and neurosurgeons whose work has a component in stroke and who are members of the ESC Council on Stroke.
If you are a not member of the ESC Council on Stroke, we encourage you to become a member today. Membership is free.
The course is designed to stimulate multidisciplinary approach to stroke prevention and treatment and to educate cardiologists.
The aims of this workshop are:
