EP Surveys

A picture of daily Electrophysiology (EP) practice in Europe through online surveys

These short surveys are conducted by the Scientific Initiatives Committee:

Tatjana Potpara (Chair), Radoslaw Lenarczyk (Co-Chair), Estelle Gandjbakhch, Gheorghe Andrei Dan, Malcolm Finlay, Giulio Conte, Michal Farkowski, Konstantinos E. Iliodromitis,
Deirdre Lane, Eloi Marijon, Francisco Marin, Frits Prinzen, Daniel Scherr, Kristine Jubele.



The EHRA Scientific Initiatives Committee (SIC) undertakes research through short EP Surveys with the aim of providing a picture of daily EP practice in Europe and insight into how consistently arrhythmia treatment is applied across ESC member countries. Particular focus is made on the implementation of current arrhythmia related ESC Guidelines.

The Committee conducts several types of surveys including centre-based (addressing the EHRA Scientific Research Network), physician-based and patient-based, together with new initiatives, such as systematic reviews and meta-analysis. 

Work with EHRA

Submit your proposal

Scope

The EHRA SIC invites you to submit your research proposal (survey, systematic review/meta-analysis, other, etc.) and get the opportunity to carry out your research together with the committee.

Please note EHRA will provide expertise on accepted submissions, however no funds can be made available.

The two research proposal forms can be downloaded according to the research you wish to submit.

Join the EHRA Scientific Initiatives Research Network and Participate in the  Surveys

The results of these surveys enable us to gather some valuable and essential information, thanks to the participating centres who regularly complete the surveys and entrust us with their data.

The results of each survey are published in the Europace Journal.

Moreover, the two best replying centres to the last surveys will be offered the co-authorship of the article published in the EP Europace Journal.
