With our objective to align with the ESC Research pillar, EHRA strives to constantly initiate or take part in the latest researches and studies that respond to unmet needs in Cardiac Rhythm and Pacing, Arrhythmias as well as Atrial Fibrillation.
The Scientific Initiatives Committee (SIC) undertakes research within EHRA’s Scientific Research Network of EP centres. This research provides insight into how consistently arrhythmia treatment is applied across ESC member countries and also monitors the implementation of ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines to identify whether there are any barriers to their adoption.
A number of important registries and trials are ongoing under the European Observational Research Programme (EORP) with EHRA being represented by the Chair of the Scientific Initiatives Committee. These registries and trials enable a timely assessment of the uptake of ESC Guidelines, monitor implementation and determine the adherence to the Guidelines.
EHRA, a registered branch of the ESC is involved in a number of EU funded research projects, often as a dissemination partner. Our role is fundamental in ensuring the very latest scientific best practice is shared with as many cardiovascular practitioners, researchers and institutions as possible.
