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.
The SIC strategic plan for the next two years will mainly focus on the following areas:
- Primary Prevention of SCD
- AF Management
- Health Economics and Communication: Arrhythmia management during the COVID era
If you would like to submit a proposal which could fit into the above mentioned areas, the SIC committee would be delighted to consider and review it.
In addition, the methodology of this clinical research will now call upon three stages: inventory, identification and correction of potential deficiencies, mid-term re-evaluation.
