EPCCS has developed several practical guidance documents on important clinical issues for primary care. We will continue to develop more such documents to help you optimise care.
The European Primary Care Cardiovascular Society (EPCCS), founded in 2000, aims to provide a focus of support, education, research, and policy on issues relating to cardiovascular disease within primary care settings. The focus of the EPCCS is directed at the interests of those working within primary care.
The focus of the EPCCS is directed at the interests of those working within primary care and aims to utilise the considerable evidence base that currently exists and contributes to extending the scientific evidence where appropriate. The initial emphasis for the Society is upon the education of health care providers. Among the current activities of the EPCCS are symposia, organised around major primary care meetings, such as WONCA and an annual stand alone clinical conference. Furthermore, close links are under review with the European Society for Cardiology (ESC) to bring the EPCCS closer to specialist colleagues.
