Testimonial of the New association Board Member

Member of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA) since 2011.

Why did you apply to join the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association board?

Acute cardiovascular care has been my every day’s job for the past 15 years. Having worked in different hospitals, ICCU’s and catheterisation labs, I have always been surprised by the differences in the pre-hospital, ER and cardiologic management of such patients. Many of such differences are experience and not evidence based. Although quite specific, acute cardiac care is broader than specialties and involves in- or out-of-hospital emergency specialists, all sub-specialty cardiologists, intensivists, cardiac and vascular surgeons. Managing patients with acute cardiac conditions requires fast decision making and technical skills. ACCA is the converging point of all competences. As a member of ESC and ACCA, with an experience in intensive and acute cardiac care and competences in epidemiology and public health, joining the executive board of the association was a major step towards participating to its essential and overwhelming activities and serving the European cardiology in general.

What are your expectations from the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA)?

I expect this new association to play a central role in promoting surveys, conducting studies, gathering different specialists involved in acute cardiac care, establishing guidelines based on evidence where available or on expert point of views where necessary, organising meetings, training different practitioners, and finally improving the management of acute cardiac conditions.

Your future within the association board

I will participate to all the activities of the executive board in the general organisation. I will get involved in any activity in which my involvement is most useful. More specifically I would like to participate in scientific activities, and getting involved in a new study group on pre-hospital care.
