EPCCS Cardiovascular Summit & 12th Annual Scientific Meeting

Agenda - Mar. 19, 2020 - Prague, Czech Republic

We are pleased to invite you to the Annual EPCCS Cardiovascular Summit for Primary Care, an initiative of the European Primary Care Cardiovascular Society (EPCCS) to be held on March 19-20, 2020 in Prague, Czech Republic

The EPCCS Cardiovascular Summit & 12th Annual EPCCS Scientific Meeting is a great educational opportunity for primary care professionals, considering that cardiovascular disease is the most important disease presenting to primary care physicians. This is the only European conference specifically aimed at primary care, with a single focus on cardiovascular disease. Scientific update sessions and debates will address issues and challenges that primary care professionals face in daily practice.

Annual EPCCS CV Summit for Primary Care

Participants are invited to have an active role in discussions aimed at reaching consensus on guidance in clinical practice. International participants are welcomed to share their perspective and experience, to exchange ideas and good clinical practice.

As output and follow-up of the CV Summit for Primary Care, the EPCCS will provide video updates with leading experts and consensus reports, all to become available on ipccs.org and shared with the EPCCS member database. As important step, the participants of the CV Summit for Primary Care will share the outcomes of the meeting with colleagues in their country, and thereby ensuring real impact in European primary care in multiple countries. As a health care professional involved in the management of cardiovascular patients in primary care, this CV Summit for Primary Care is an educational programme you cannot miss.

We look forward welcoming you in Prague

Educational programme 2020

The summit will cover major issues in a sessional debate format with focused clinical update talks. The main debate sessions will present the most up to date evidence on a range of key cardiovascular topics and what this means for clinical primary care practice, concluding with what evidence should be implemented, where uncertainties remain, and how we should deal with this.

Outputs from EPCCS 2020 will become key points on our website, with video sessions, free-standing papers, and guidance documents, translated where possible.
