Find out about the association's collaborative efforts with other ESC organisations and external organisations.
On 28 August, the ESC General Assembly in Munich voted to elevate the long-standing ESC Council on Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professions (CCNAP) to an association, one of only seven within the ESC.
Since its launch in Barcelona on the 5 September 2006, CCNAP has made significant strides and now counts more than 3000 members worldwide.
“Nurses and allied health professionals play a pivotal role in cardiac care. Evolution of the CCNAP to the Association of Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professionals (ACNAP) gives further strength to our growing community. It will allow us to collaborate and contribute at an equal level with other subspecialties and associations within ESC so we can play an even greater role in the delivery of optimal cardiovascular care.” President of ACNAP, Dr Tina Hansen (Zealand University Hospital, Roskilde, Denmark)
We believe that nurses and allied health professionals play a pivotal role in cardiac care. Interventions developed, tested and implemented by nurses and allied health professionals can assist patients to prevent, adjust to and recover from cardiac illness. In ACNAP, you will find a team of dedicated professionals, eager to support you in the delivery of excellent cardiovascular care. Whether you are working in practice, education or research, we welcome you and encourage you to join our Council. We are committed to your professional development.
