The EHRA-PATHS Management Team is led by the European Society of Cardiology. To effectively communicate and implement the project, the following consortium partners have joined the Management Team : the Antwerp University Hospital (UZA), the University Medical Centre Groningen (UMCG) and Catalyze (CAT). Together these members are committed to the seamless management of the project.
Barcelona, Spain – 18 April 2023: A novel software tool set to improve the management of elderly atrial fibrillation patients with multiple conditions is being designed by the EU-funded and ESC-coordinated EHRA-PATHS consortium. The latest updates on this clinical innovation will be presented at EHRA 2023, a scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).
The consortium meeting took place the 18th and 19th of April in Barcelona just after the EHRA Congress 2023, where WP leaders presented the first results from the project. Mor information about the presentation at the EHRA Congress can be found through this link.
How can EHRA-PATHS contribute to improving the lives of elderly atrial fibrillation patients with multimorbidity?
For me EHRA-PATHS can contribute to early detection of co-morbidities, and when we manage these, there will likely be a beneficial effect on cardiovascular outcomes.
The EHRA contributes to the mission of the ESC which is “to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease” but focused in heart rhythm disorders.
This year, the EHRA Congress took place online and entirely redesigned the scientific programme to emphasis on “Making connections to overcome arrhythmia”. Lien Desteghe, postdoc at the Antwerp University and Hasselt University, participated in the event as speaker of the session “New care pathways to improve outcomes in multimorbid, elderly atrial fibrillation patients”.
