ESCed - the European Society of Cardiology’s new educational website

19.08.2003


The European Society of Cardiology (EBAC), in association with the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC), has set up ESCed, http://www.ESCed.org, as a one-stop resource for case studies, guidelines, references and abstracts. ESCed registrants can compare answers and clinical decisions with colleagues across Europe and earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits by following the on-line courses.



Professor Roberto Ferrari, Ferrara, Italy, Chairman of the ESC Education Committee states, "ESCed is based on a patient management-led core curriculum and delivered through a series of case studies with a hands-on approach to patient management. The internet is an ideal way to link medical professionals from all over Europe and enable them to interact and discuss key topics with their colleagues. It is my belief that ESCed will swiftly become a leading resource and discussion forum in European cardiology".

Dr Keith McGregor, ESC Scientific Programmes Director, comments, "The clear course structure of ESCed is easy to follow and very dynamic, with new case studies and materials being added on a continual basis. Feedback from registrants is crucial to keeping ESCed up to date and ensuring the site is user-friendly. ESCed users can also offer case studies or other educational materials to be uploaded onto the system and shared with their colleagues. We have designed ESCed to be a fully-interactive on-line tool and encourage comments and suggestions from all visitors and registrants".


All ESCed content is in accordance with ESC Guidelines and been authorised for CME credits by both the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) and the European Accreditation Committee for CME in Europe (EACCME). For more details on CME in Europe see http://www.ebac-cme.org.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...

Physics supports biology: Researchers from PTB have developed a model system to investigate friction phenomena with atomic precision

Friction: what you want from car brakes, otherwise rather a nuisance. In any case, it is useful to know as precisely as possible how friction phenomena arise –...
