Find out more about the ESC Task Force on Allied Professions
No single healthcare discipline can provide all the knowledge and skills required to meet the complex needs of today’s patients. Thus, cardiovascular disease management demands expert input from various disciplines, including physicians, nurses, and many allied professionals. A common definition of allied professionals was approved by the ESC Board and has been implemented since 2019:
“Allied Professionals are a distinct group who work in collaboration with physicians and nurses and apply their expertise to facilitate prevention, provide diagnostic services, treatment and rehabilitation of people, and/or undertake research, to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease”.
As such, the definition of allied professionals encompasses a broad range of professions with expertise in disease prevention, diagnostics, and treatment interventions, through to rehabilitation.
An ESC transversal Task Force on Allied Professions with representatives from all ESC Associations was created by the ESC board in 2018, with the intention on working strategically on how to reposition, strengthen and highlight the important position of allied professionals in cardiovascular disease management both internal and externally of the ESC.
The primary objective of the Task Force on Allied Professions is to clearly define allied professions in an ESC setting, identify their needs and how the ESC can meet them. In addition, the Task Force works to identify key opportunities for the ESC to build a stronger community and engage allied professions in the various activities of the ESC and subspecialties.
