61 NCPCs have been appointed by the Presidents of National Cardiac Societies in ESC member countries:
View the prevention in your country to access full reports on the 'country of the month' initiative. The overall objective of this initiative is to facilitate implementation of CVD prevention by providing web-based information on prevention among the ESC member states and to inspire both national coordinators and others in the field of preventive cardiology.
National CVD Prevention Coordinators from 11 different countries discussed prevention strategies at the workshop on 14 May 2015 (EuroPRevent in Lisbon).
The aim of the workshop was to debate the role of cardiologists and other health workers in promoting and implementing preventive cardiology and thereby proposing actions for improving the present state of CVD prevention. The well-attended two-hour session was opened by ESC President Professor Fausto Pinto and chaired by EAPC President Professor Antonio Pelliccia.
