Telemonitoring changes the working practice of cardiac nurses
Date:4/8/2009

The 9th Annual Spring Meeting of the European Society of Cardiology Council on Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professions (CCNAP), organised in cooperation with the Irish Nurses Cardiovascular Association (INCA), is being held at the Royal Dublin Society, Dublin, Ireland, on 24-25 April.

The meeting - considered by many to be the premier international event for nurses and allied health professionals - will show case the latest advances in practice, education and research. The 400 plus delegates expected to attend from 26 different countries, will have the opportunity to hear wide ranging sessions covering all aspects of cardiology, including enhancing self care in heart failure populations, managing patients with ventricular assist devices, sudden cardiac death, hypertension, angina, and adult congenital heart disease, and improving primary and secondary prevention.

The theme of this year's meeting is "Addressing the Challenges in Cardiovascular Care", with sessions exploring particular challenges of cardiovascular practice in the modern era, including diabetes and metabolic syndrome, behavioural change, and adherence to treatment. Sessions geared towards the practical management of cardiovascular care in daily situations will include how to incorporate guidelines into practice, take a cardiac history, improve assessment of heart sounds and interpret echo cardiograms. One innovative aspect of this year's meeting is the opportunity for health professionals to hear patients' personal perspectives on experiencing an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) storm, and having a ventricular assist device as a bridge to transplant.

"The Spring Meeting is about improving cardiovascular care, and addressing the challenges we face, such as the rapid development of knowledge and technology, and the changing roles of nurses and allied health professionals," says Professor Christi Deaton, Chair person of the ESC Council on Cardiovascular
