Preventive Cardiology, Cardiac Rehabilitation & Sports Cardiology

24. August 2017 at 11:50

20th to 23rd November 2017, Bern, Switzerland.

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and disability in most European countries. Secondary prevention has become a cornerstone of treatment, but a majority of coronary patients do not achieve guideline standards, predisposing them to progression of disease, recurrent events, and heart failure.

Educational objectives

Learn to set up and run a modern preventive programme, including exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation in cardiac patients with and without heart failure.

Learn how to implement a multidisciplinary approach (exercise prescription, smoking cessation, nutrition and psychosocial counselling).

Special focus on:

  • optimal medical therapy
  • patients with a high cardiovascular risk
  • exercise testing
  • exercise training and long-term management
  • sports cardiology and sports in patients with cardiac diseases
  • new frontiers and modern concepts in secondary prevention
