Joining efforts to tackle heart disease
Date:4/7/2008

y important. Cardiologists cannot tackle heart disease alone. CVD is usually the product of multiple interacting risk factors so we need to work with experts from other bodies, in particular in the fields of behavioural medicine and diabetes. Much practical preventive advice is delivered by family doctors, nurses and voluntary bodies such as Heart Foundations. All these partners are represented in our joint committee.

Working together, these partners contributed to updating the Joint European Guidelines4 on CVD Prevention in Clinical Practice. These Guidelines are an important consensus document summarizing all available evidence in CVD with the aim to assist physicians in selection the best management strategies for patients at risk.

The ESC is now working with its partners so that national strategies are implemented across Europe. The implementation should be driven by multidisciplinary local alliances, explains Lars Rydn, former President of the ESC and a member of the Swedish Society of Cardiology who also contributed to the Guidelines. This Call for Action will certainly be adopted in Sweden. Establishing alliances, incorporating representatives from all domains involved in creating a heart healthy surrounding and harmonizing all efforts towards this purpose is of the utmost importance. The implementation of the Prevention Guidelines is essential as well. Without a coordinated approach the goals will be difficult to reach. Together, these actions are really something we should be able to attain.

Time has come to join efforts and to take concerted action to improve cardiovascular health in Europe through a network of National Coordinators for CVD Prevention. The European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (EACPR) is actively involved in the implementation of the ESC Prevention Guidelines and eager to pilot this process throughout Europe, particularly targeting high risk regions says Hugo Saner, EACPR President.'/>"/>
