The Primary Care Cardiovascular Society (PCCS) is set to host its 4th Spring Conference at The King’s Fund in London on the 22nd and 23rd of May 2024. This conference is dedicated to exploring the complexities of managing comorbidities in patients with cardiovascular diseases. Through a series of patient case studies, the event aims to provide attendees with tangible insights into practical patient care. Emphasising quality improvement, these sessions will offer valuable strategies for healthcare professionals.
The conference seeks to bridge gaps between different specialities within cardiovascular care. By gathering a diverse mix of healthcare professionals and researchers, it aims to foster an environment of knowledge sharing and cross-disciplinary collaboration. This setting is not only conducive to enhancing continuing education but also to sparking innovation in the field.
Featured Session: Arterial Disease – Aortic Dissection
One of the highlights of the conference is the session on Arterial Disease, specifically focusing on aortic dissection. This session will delve into the latest advancements in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of aortic dissection. It aims to shed light on this complex condition, characterised by the tearing of the inner layer of the aorta, which can lead to a range of critical situations if not promptly addressed.
Attendees will gain insights into the latest research and treatment strategies, understand the risk factors and symptoms associated with aortic dissection, and learn about the importance of early detection. The session will also discuss long-term management strategies for patients, including lifestyle adjustments and ongoing medical care.
Our Partnership with PCCS
Aligned with the objectives of the PCCS to enhance cardiovascular health in primary care, our partnership focuses on education and the development of best practices in this field. Together, we have developed resources like the Aortic Dissection Field Guide for Primary Care and associated video content, aiming to enhance the understanding and management of this condition among healthcare professionals.
Our recent collaboration included a webinar for the South London Cardiovascular Network, emphasising our commitment to continuous professional development and patient care in the field of cardiovascular health.
We invite all healthcare professionals interested in advancing their knowledge and skills in cardiovascular care to join us at this important event. The PCCS 4th Spring Conference promises to be a convergence of learning, innovation, and collaboration in the heart of London.
