Clinical Practice Guidelines


Guidance you rely on: ESC Guidelines are designed to help you give the best possible care to your patients. They present relevant evidence that helps you weigh the benefits and risks of a particular diagnostic or therapeutic procedure. They are essential in everyday clinical decision-making and are available in multiple formats, including the full text (printed in the European Heart Journal), the ESC Pocket Guidelines App, summary cards, essential messages and slide sets.

Emperor-live-1500x1000.jpgCongresses that change practice: At congresses – online or in-person - we inspire, innovate and take learning to a new level. They are powerful platforms to disseminate highly relevant research findings, update clinical best practices and bring together key opinion leaders, experts and young cardiologists. Knowledge-sharing in this way can have a profound impact on patient care and is at the heart of our mission.


More about congresses



Education you want: To help you stay up to date and take your career to the next level we offer you online and classroom courses, webinars, postgraduate courses in collaboration with leading universities, and certification programmes. Our programmes are interactive, designed by experts and cover the full spectrum of cardiology.

More about journals



The EURObservational Research Programme (EORP), collects data from more than 2,500 centres in 100 countries across over 20 different registries. These studies give a clearer picture of global medical practice, covering a wide range of common and rare CVDs, interventional techniques and prevention.

EORP is currently recruiting for three registries: Heart Failure III, Pregnancy and Cardiac Disease (ROPAC III), Valve Durability (TAVI), and Spontaneous Coronary Arterious Dissection (SCAD). Get in touch if your centre would like to take part.

EuroHeart will be the new frontier in patient registries. This exciting pan-European registry will cover several common diseases (HF, AFib, ACS-PCI, valve disease) on a single platform for all countries.

The main aim is to create a constant learning experience with immediate feedback- real-time data that can support instant decision-making. This is an ambitious project that could radically change the way we use patient data. Estonia is the first country to be selected for the pilot project.

By working with like-minded organisations and our network of national cardiac societies, we help make cardiovascular disease a top priority for governments. From research funding to medical device regulation and heart health policy, we share our expertise and statistics to ensure decision-makers have the right information to support our mission and save lives.
