EuroPRevent 09: Changing hearts and minds in the drive to prevent cardiovascular disease
Date:3/11/2009

EuroPRevent 2009, the congress of the European Association of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation, will this year mark the culmination of a five-year period of heart-healthy political activity in Europe which saw in 2007 the presentation of the European Heart Health Charter to the European Parliament.

"How far has Europe come?" asks congress joint organiser Professor Joep Perk. "Now is the time to evaluate."

EuroPRevent will assess progress in preventive cardiology in the eight features of the Charter: smoking; blood pressure; cholesterol; physical activity; diet; obesity; glucose metabolism; and stress.

"Our main achievement so far is that there is now political agreement that prevention is a major issue" says Professor Perk, "but there is still huge diversity in how individual countries in Europe turn words into action. Some countries - like Slovenia have done exceptionally well in their introduction of programmes, while others have made little progress. EuroPRevent 2009 will bring all countries together and hopefully inspire them with a common purpose and how to achieve it."

EuroPRevent 2009 will take place at the Stockholmsmassan in Stockholm, Sweden, from 6-9 May 2009.

The event promises to be the leading event of the year in preventive cardiology and we encourage you to mark the event in your news diaries.

Professor Perk admits that none of the eight preventive measures are easily defined or easily achieved. How low should blood pressure go? How to reshape supersized kids? We need cholesterol, but how much? How can we avoid stress in a stressful world?

EuroPRevent 2009's revisit to the European Heart Health Charter will provide some answers in its main sessions on 7 May, and, with the results of the ESC's latest EUROASPIRE survey still showing huge gaps between target and reality even in secondary prevention, evaluate how far Europe has come in primary prevention.
