The ESC Working Groups' goal is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
The ESC Councils' goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
The ACCA School is a 2 days practical hands-on meeting, aimed to train young doctors on how to best treat patients with acute cardiovascular diseases. 6 workshops are specifically designed for small groups to optimise learning outcome.
The School will be followed by the ACCA Certification exam on Acute Cardiac Care (4 November 2017).
Within the field of Acute Cardiovascular Care, practical training deserves a special focus. Starting in 2015 at the association’s annual congress, a practical ACCA school has been introduced, comprising two practical sessions dealing with ventilation and renal replacement. Following the success of this first attempt, the project was extended in 2016 to three sessions repeated twice, and lead to the idea of organising a stand alone ACCA school outside of the annual congress.
The ACCA School 2017 will focus on interaction and practical training on the most important topics and issues encountered when working within the field of acute cardiovascular medicine.
Be ready to challenge yourself!
The goal of the ACCA School is to give participants the required theoretical knowledge and practical skills for their daily work in acute cardiovascular care.
Participants will be asked to review the existing ACCA literature (E-learning platform (ESCeL) and the updated version of the ESC Textbook of Intensive and Acute Cardiovascular Caree (IACC))
As an option, participant's knowledge could be officially recognised by partaking in the ACCA certification process
On Thursday 2 and Friday 3 November, there will be 6 groups of 10 persons rotating to attend each of the 6 modules.
On Saturday 4 November the ACCA Certification Exam tips & tricks session followed by the written Exam will takeplace.
The 2 days meeting will include the following courses:
