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.

This year, the EHRA-PATHS consortium will present at the EHRA Congress about Exploring Complexities of Atrial Fibrillation and Comorbidities. A joined session with consortium partners Tatjana Potpara, Prashanthan Sanders, Gerry Lee, Dominik Linz and ESC Patient Jeremy Wright. Will you join us! 

The EHRA-PATHS consortium met in Berlin on April 9th and 10th following the EHRA Congress 2024, to discuss the latest updates on their collaborative research efforts in the project. This meeting saw representatives from various institutions come together to review progress made across different work packages, delve into methodological details, and address key project management and communication strategies.

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.

Interview with Hein Heidbuchel (UZA) - Scientific coordinator

How can EHRA-PATHS contribute to improving the lives of elderly atrial fibrillation patients with multimorbidity?

Interview with Isabelle van Gelder (UMCG)

An overview of the goals and activities of Work Package 5 (WP5) – Clinical and Health Economic Evaluation, in the context of the newly developed care program for elderly atrial fibrillation patients with multimorbidity. 

Interview with Emma Svennberg - Karolinska Institutet

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.              

Interview with Prof. Jose Luis Merino – EHRA President

The EHRA contributes to the mission of the ESC which is “to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease” but focused in heart rhythm disorders.

Dr. Geraldine Lee
(University College Cork)

Dr. Lee about EHRA-PATHS: ” We are looking at comorbidities in the older population who have atrial fibrillation and how we can manage it better”

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”.

Sophia Antipolis, 25 April 2021 | The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) today announces the launch of EHRA-PATHS, an EU-funded project to improve the management of elderly atrial fibrillation patients with multiple conditions. The announcement comes during EHRA 2021, the online annual congress of the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) of the ESC.
