Following the recent presidential criss-cross during EuroPCR 2014, the newly elected Board and its committees are well established and running. Throughout this newsletter you will be introduced to some features and updates which have been initiated since then. The goals of our Association are multiple and to accomplish them the EAPCI counts on the commitment of our active members. These members work at the level of the National Societies and Working Groups, but also internationally within the Association itself and through our various committees.This edition of the EAPCI newsletter will coincide with the ESC 2014 congress in Barcelona. This meeting has matured to the largest congress in the field of cardiovascular medicine worldwide with more than 30,000 participants expected to exchange scientific knowledge and novelties. This year’s programme promises to be particularly attractive with numerous hot line sessions and clinical trial updates, basic and translational science session, Focus sessions including live case transmissions with direct relevance for daily practice, cases in crossfire, meet the experts, and many updates covering all areas of cardiovascular medicine.
ESC Congress 2014 has particular importance for the interventional community and EAPCI for several reasons:
Apart from the congress activities, the Association continues to be involved in numerous additional activities:
As an Association, the EAPCI is privileged to be supported by many talented individuals willing to take on the responsibilities in committees and various task forces. It is with this joint effort that we are able to promote new knowledge, education and ensure the highest quality of care for patients.
