Educational information

This video is an initiative of the new EPCCS Council. The EPCCS Council was established to create a platform of General Practitioners with an interest in cardiovascular disease active within their country primary care societies and connect between the EPCCS board and individual country members.

The EPCCS aims to improve the care and outcome of patients with cardiovascular disease. This will be achieved by providing exchange of knowledge, practical guidance and the promotion amongst primary care clinical practitioners of research, education and developments relating to cardiovascular and metabolic disease in general, and community cardiovascular medicine in particular.

EPCCS is a special interest group of WONCA


Prof. Bert Vaes, MD is assistant professor at the Academic Center of General Practice, KU Leuven, Belgium and general practitioner at General Practitioner's Practice Hoeilaart ‘De Doenders’. He represents Domus Medica (Flemish association of general practitioners).
