Date:3/6/2009

The cardiovascular nurse and allied professional are already at the heart of many management and prevention programmes in heart disease, and Professor Christi Deaton, Chairperson of the ESC Council on Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professions (CCNAP), foresees an even greater role given the complex needs of people with heart disease.

CCNAP 2009 will be held at the Royal Dublin Society, Dublin, Ireland, on 24-25 April.

Joint congress organiser Mary O'Connor, President of the Irish Nurses Cardiovascular Association, adds that nurses and allied professionals have a huge role to play in managing this chronic condition, improving the quality of life for those affected and reducing the risk of hospital admission and death.

"Frequently the heart failure population's quality of life is impaired due to their symptom burden and loss of independence and autonomy. In addition to Heart Fail
