- About EAS
EAS has pioneered guidelines on the prevention of cardiovascular disease with pan-European campaigns in 1987 and 1988. Recognizing that guidelines endorsed by cardiologists would have greater impact on clinical practice, the EAS joined forces with the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the European Society of Hypertension (ESH) to issue the first set of joint European Guidelines on Prevention of Coronary Artery Disease in 1994. This collaboration has been expanded over the years.
EAS has collaborated with the European Society of Cardiology to publish joint guidelines on management of dyslipidaemias in 2011, which were updated August 2016.
Recently published also are the Joint 2016 European Guidelines on Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in Clinical Practice, a collaboration by 10 professional societies.
