ISH Seeks “Case Studies” For Its 2010 Meeting In Vancouver
The International Society of Hypertension (ISH) is seeking real-life examples of barriers to the implementation of best practice for blood pressure and cardiovascular risk. These barriers might be geographical, financial, cultural or regulatory. These examples might also relate to issues of manpower or to the structures needed to support screening, prevention and treatment.
ISH hopes to receive “case studies” rather than broad summaries of problems, as it believes that it can capture the attention of government and the wider community through stories that have a human interest aspect. At this stage, the case studies do not need to be complex or very long – perhaps two (2) pages or less – and photographs, if possible, to illustrate the issues.
ISH intends to incorporate that these “case studies” as a key part of forthcoming Scientific Meeting in Vancouver (26-30 September 2010, www.VancouverHypertension2010.com) there is a special event planned entitled: “Bridging the Gaps: Reducing Cardiovascular Risk in Low Cost Settings”. and result in some really useful discussion and engagement of key decision-makers.
The ISH has agreed to support the attendance at Vancouver of up to 3 representatives from ISH Forum Affiliated Societies chosen from submissions.
Please submit any “case studies” directly to the ISH Secretarial at on or before Friday 27 th November 2009.
