The Council on Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professions (CCNAP) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the Working Group for Cardiovascular Nurses and Allied Professionals of the Swiss Society of Cardiology are delighted to welcome you to the 10th Annual Spring Meeting on Cardiovascular Nursing to be held 12 – 13 March in Geneva, Switzerland. The Annual Spring Meetings provide opportunities for cardiovascular nurses and allied professionals to come together and discuss innovations in practice and education, recent findings from research, and the challenges that confront us in cardiovascular care.

The beautiful city of Geneva is centrally located, and offers outstanding facilities for delegates. In order to enable greater communication and collaboration with our colleagues and to reinforce our theme ‘Uniting to Improve Cardiovascular Practice’, we plan to translate sessions into French, German and Italian.

The planned programme offers opportunities to develop practical skills, debate important issues in practice and education, exchange ideas, and learn from experts. During the two days of scientific sessions, attendees will hear the latest updates on acute cardiac practice, heart failure, prevention, diabetes, arrhythmias, surgery, interventions and devices, and psychosocial and behavioural issues, and interact with colleagues from around the globe, and will have the possibility to participate in oral and poster abstract presentations. The meeting will also provide a unique opportunity by which our Industry Partners may network with attendees from across the world.
