We are delighted to officially welcome you to Athens from 7-9th March 2020 for the annual congress of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (Acca) of the ESC.
This congress brings together cardiologists, intensivists, anaesthetists, internists, cardiac surgeons, nurses, paramedics and other allied professionals who care for acutely ill cardiac patients. Acute Cardiovascular Care congress is the leading scientific event in the field.
The 2020 congress will offer in-depth scientific presentations by leading global experts, covering the spectrum of acute cardiac care, including acute coronary syndromes, acute heart failure, reperfusion andrevascularisation, mechanical circulatory support in shock or pre-shock, management of arrhythmias in the acute setting, refractory cardiac arrest, acute venous thromboembolism, and cardiothoracic intensive care, as well as secondary prevention, with a particular focus on antithrombotic therapy, lipid lowering and anti-diabetic strategies.
The Acute Cardiovascular Care Association strongly believes in the education of healthcare professionals as part of lifelong learning, but also including those who are early in their career. This congress will provide education and discussion for the next generation of clinicians and researchers, working alongside experts in the field, with the aim to promote dissemination of knowledge and improve patient outcomes. Education is a key mission for the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association – forming one of the main pillars of the ESC.
