Dr. Kyyak Hryhoriy
Yes, sure it did! At the Career café, I got the opportunity to meet leading specialists of the European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC). I received valuable tips and personal understanding on how to implement contemporary prevention and treatment of patients with cardiovascular diseases. Acquaintance with Ana Abreu, chair of the EAPC Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR) section, was very useful as I obtained utmost support in my endeavours and inspiration to move forward.
Professor Hugo Saner, whom I met during the EuroPrevent meeting in Nice, recommended attending the CR course in Bern as a way of achieving information and practice tools of primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
I was impressed of the results of modern supervised exercise training in patients after acute coronary syndrome, which definitely improves prognosis of coronary artery disease. I got experience in exercise stress testing and exercise prescription for patients with and without heart failure. I received tools of cardiovascular risk assessment and guidelines for optimal medical therapy. The course included very useful lectures considering sports cardiology.
My own motivation is to acquaint our specialists with the modern European approaches in CR. It is a great honour for us to host the course in Lviv (Ukraine) under direct guidance of Prof. Hugo Saner, who took precious care of each step of the course organisation and built up of the international team for the course. Besides we are very grateful to Professor Ana Abreu for her incentive and support to this CR Course. The scientific programme is endorsed by EAPC. Besides, I am very thankful to our local Ukrainian Zagoriy family foundation for the significant support in the organisation of this important event.
