Thank you for making this year such a success!
This year's Spring Summit was attended by more than 180 healthcare professionals - leaders and future leaders - from around the world. Thank you to everyone for your participation.
Your experience during ESC Spring Summit is important. Please take two minutes to share your feedback in this short survey - thank you!
Just some of the take home messages this year:
To succeed in our mission, CVD needs to be on the agenda of policymakers and budget owners. It’s the only way we will secure adequate funds for cardiovascular research and healthcare systems, and it’s the most effective way to influence regulation and policies that will drive down the incidence of heart disease. The ESC is advocating in each of these areas and is here to support National Cardiac Societies in this crucial battle.
New technologies are transforming healthcare; Big Data is playing an ever-larger role in personalised medicine; apps and wearables give us real-time access to our patients’ symptoms; remote monitoring and shared information platforms could subvert traditional doctor/patient interaction. The new ESC Digital Summit on 5 and 6 October in Tallinn, Estonia will help us address some of these issues.
As leaders in cardiology, we have a responsibility to develop and support our colleagues and to create work environments that enable our teams to do their best. If we are guided by our principles - Trust, Transparency, Helpfulness, Excellence – we will not only succeed individually, but in what we aspire to achieve together through the ESC.
Our mission: To reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease
