The aim of this committee is to organize ongoing and future registries involving percutaneous cardiovascular interventions. The goal for the next 2 years is to initiate the Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) Registry in collaboration with the EurObservational Research Programme and the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA). This registry will capture the current state of Primary PCI, but is also planned to include thrombolytic therapy and non-reperfused patients. Thus, it will help to provide contemporary benchmarking against ESC guidelines and address not only differences in practice patterns but also compare some aspects of the quality of care available to patients in different European countries.
The main goals of the this Committee for the next two years (2014-2016) will be the promotion of the EAPCI/ESCeL platform use by the young interventional cardiologists in training across Europe and around the world. This Committee will be devoted to the auditing process necessary to provide a feedback at the European level to the trainees. This feedback is of critical importance to have access to the certificate recognizing the high standard of training in interventional cardiology at the European level. Furthermore, with the planned delivery of the second version of the ESC eLearning platform at the ESC 2014 Congress in Barcelona, it will be possible for qualified (senior) interventional cardiologists to create their own personal account and use the Continuous Medical Education (CME) and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) areas of this educational platform for their benefit. This second version of the platform will also allow the presence of educational materials in local languages. In summary, the aim of this project is to deliver the highest European standard of training and education, to as many as possible, at the lowest cost possible.
The main goal of this Committee is to provide an opportunity for clinical training in the field of interventional cardiology for young physicians who are in the course of their basic cardiology training. This is achieved thanks to the offer of Training and Research Grants which help young candidates to:
Completion of this apprenticeship learning and/or research program enable them to contribute to introduce new treatment modalities and improve academic standards upon return to their own country.This program should also be considered as a valorization of the geographical mobility as well as cultural exchanges and professional practice in the field of cardiology.
The aim of this committee is to:
This committee was created in 2011 under the presidency of Jean Fajadet. Many initiatives have been already put in place to address the unmet needs of the young generation of interventional cardiologists, including CathGo (the search engine for training opportunities in Europe), the development of specific contents for EuroPCR and PCR Seminars, and the creation of the EAPCI European Fellows Course. Along this line, the 2014-2016 Committee will continue to capture expectations and develop new initiatives around three pillars:
The main task this committee is to provide visibility of our association by preparing high quality, interactive and educational sessions for the upcoming ESC congresses. This year is a unique opportunity with the release of the new Myocardial Revascularization guidelines whereby EAPCI role was of key importance. It our responsibility to take the lead and make connections with other associations/working groups which share common interest with our association. I wish good luck to everyone and hope for an interactive committee.
The purpose of this committee is to:
The Scientific Document Committee (SDC) was established by the board of the European Association of Percutaneous Intervention (EAPCI) in June 2014 with the aim of supervising and monitoring the preparation and publication of Expert Consensus and Position Papers of the EAPCI.
The SDC was created to:
The purpose of EAPCI scientific statements is to:
The SDC will work in coordination with other ESC Associations as well as other non-ESC scientific organisations aiming at disseminating and improving knowledge and expertise around patients care.
The mission of this committee is to attain gender equality at the professional and patient level.
Its values are:
Its objectives are to:
Our mission: To reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease
