Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to disseminate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care.
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission is to promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death.
Our mission is to improve quality of life and longevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
The ESC Working Groups' goal is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
The ESC Councils' goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
“This is a unique evaluation which combines clinical data and health structure characteristics of different countries. It provides a fuller picture of the reasons some patients with heart failure do not receive treatment according to ESC guidelines.”
“We found that within country variation was higher than the variation across countries. Countries with a large variability in adherence to guidelines between centres need targeted approaches to improve access and quality of care. Those with low adherence overall need country-wide solutions.”
“Our analysis shows that it is not only clinical factors that influence whether or not guidelines are implemented. Countries that have a specific programme to implement guidelines and that pay for them to be followed have a statistically significantly better adherence to recommended treatments.”
“The next step in the ESC’s collaboration with the OECD is to see if these health structure characteristics and clinical variables are also associated with outcomes in patients with heart failure.”
