Through its prevention programmes, the ESC has developed several educational materials and decision making tools to support health professionals and policy makers in their daily practice, in close collaboration with the EAPC.
The Expert Tool offers digital, interactive decision support tool for exercise prescription.
This pilot tool is based on the EXPERT Flowchart (EXercise Prescription in Everyday practice & Rehabilitation Training), developed by the University of Hasselt, in collaboration with the European Association of Preventive Cardiology.
European Guidelines on CVD Prevention in Clinical Practice (2016) The prevention guidelines recommend a model for total risk estimation based on the SCORE (Systematic Coronary Risk Evaluation) system and define the lifestyle, risk factor and therapeutic targets for cardiovascular disease prevention.
The Guideline Learning Tool (GLT) is an interactive case-based e-learning programme (demo version) based on the 2012 European Guidelines on Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in Clinical Practice. Supported by Pfizer LTD in the form of an unrestricted educational grant.
