General practitioners, cardiologists, internists and other professionals manage hypertension in their daily work. It is important for them to be aware of the latest findings in the field and how to optimally treat their patients especially when other disorders are concomitant.

The important findings described in the 2018 ESC / ESH Guidelines on the Management of Arterial Hypertension were disseminated in a guidelines implementation workshop organised by the ESC Council on Hypertension.


The programme was designed for all specialties interested in hypertension, with a special focus on young physicians and emerging opinion leaders. The target audience included but was not limited to:

  • Cardiologists
  • Endocrinologists
  • Nephrologists
  • Medical internists

52 people attended this Workshop, representing a total of 30 different countries worldwide.
