Change of name, change of mission and same will to support you

Our association has recently undergone a major change in its image and positioning. As we move forward it is essential that we are consistent in our branding and it was decided to immediately align the association acronym with its journal (EHJ-ACVC).

What does it change?

  • The Acute CardioVascular Care Association (ACVC) becomes the Association for Acute CardioVascular Care (ACVC)
  • Our mission statement has been revised: “To improve the quality of care and outcome of patients with acute cardiovascular diseases”
