One of the best tools to help practitioners make the best bedside clinical decisions when managing patients with acute cardiovascular diseases.
A comprehensive guidelines implementation toolkit especially for Nurses & Allied Professionals.
Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is the world’s number one killer, accounting for 1 in 5 deaths in Europe
Without effective treatment of risk and risk factors, the immediate mortality after an acute event increases with a further rise in patients dying in the subsequent year
In those who survive an initial post-MI period, an increased risk of death from cardiovascular causes persists indefinitely
Reducing morbidity and mortality among post-myocardial infarction and other patients at high risk of subsequent event require the implementation of effective prevention measures
Evidence shows an increase in risk factor awareness in developing countries, but a decrease in developing countries – this issue is a global problem
Guidelines targets are achievable: Evidence shows that effective secondary prevention measures outlined in clinical practice Guidelines can significantly reduce the risk of a subsequent cardiovascular event
There is a need and room for improvement!
The ESC Prevention of CVD Programme is led by the European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC) in collaboration with the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA) and the Association of Cardiovascular Nursing & Allied Professions (ACNAP). The programme is being rolled out in three phases:
The ESC Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease programme is supported by AMGEN, AstraZeneca, Ferrer, and Sanofi and Regeneron in the form of educational grants.
