About the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association

The Acute Cardiovascular Care Association is a registered branch of the ESC.

Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS)

Our goal is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to disseminate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care.


The task of creating a unique scientific body to facilitate the necessary integration of expertise and techniques is challenging but critical. 

Over the past twelve years, the Working Group has constantly evolved and improved its dedication to best outcome for patients. Time and effort has been invested in numerous projects that now constitute a solid foundation for the new association.

  • a renowned Congress,
  • a brand-new journal,
  • a textbook on intensive and acute cardiac care,
  • an established certification programme,

On that basis, the ACCA has developed a robust business plan and is implementing a series of far-reaching initiatives that include:

  • Working closely with National Cardiac Societies to establish – and adopt – harmonised treatment standards across Europe
  • Establishing the ACCA as a multi-disciplinary exchange platform for medical professionals
  • Providing state-of-the-art education, certification, and training on the most effective treatment strategies
  • Supporting professionals involved in acute cardiac care to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes of acute cardiovascular diseases
  • Influencing and advising healthcare professionals, scientists, institutions and hospitals, allied societies of all aspects of acute cardiac care;
