IX ECPD INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL ON
with the main topic
PREVENTION, DETECTION, AND MANAGEMENT OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES
(Bečići, 26-30 June, 2017)
It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the IX ECPD International Summer School of Cardiovascular Disease (hereinafter referred to as: School).
The European Center for Peace and Development University for Peace established by the United Nations (ECPD) traditionally organizes this Summer School with the aim to advance the knowledge of primary care providers, specialists in cardiology and other specialties in the latest technological and research developments, and guidelines for prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. The five-day program will focus on the latest research, technological advances and case study review as well as discussion on the guidelines and latest treatment options regarding the prevention, early detection and management of cardiovascular diseases. The School is intended for primary care doctors and specialists (cardiologists, endocrinologists, internists, pediatricians, etc.).
President of the School Council is Academician Prof. Dr. Vladimir Kanjuh, SANU, Belgrade, Director of the School is Academician Prof. Dr. Nathan Wong, University of California, Irvine, USA, and Co-Directors of the School are Prof. Dr. Ian Graham, Trinity College, Ireland, Academician Prof. Dr. Miodrag Ostojić, SANU, Belgrade, and Academician Prof. Dr. Duško Vulić, University of Banja Luka.
The School is accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) with 23 CME credits for the participants.
Despite the guidelines for the treatment of acute coronary syndromes, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, and prevention of cardiovascular diseases, many patients, especially in the South-East European region remain inadequately treated for risk factors, acute coronary syndromes, heart failure, or atrial fibrillation and adherence to treatments is not optimal. Recent surveys from EUROSPIRE III and EUROASPIRE IV show that many patients with pre-existing coronary artery disease are not on the recommended therapies and treatment patterns vary considerably between regions, even within a limited geographic region such as the South-East European region. Data often show that while treatment of individual risk factors may be adequate, combined treatment and goal attainment of multiple risk factors, such as LDL-C, blood pressure and A1c levels together in those with diabetes is often insufficient, requiring implementation of systemic efforts addressed to all required risk factors both in primary and in secondary prevention.
The Program of this year’s School will cover the following topics:
Lessons in Preventive Cardiology Learned from Epidemiologic Studies: Framingham and Beyond
Cardiovascular Risk Estimation ‒ European vs. US Approaches
