Guidelines aim to present all the relevant evidence on a particular clinical issue in order to help physicians to weigh the benefits and risks of a particular diagnostic or therapeutic procedure. They should be helpful in everyday clinical medical decision-making. The BSC aims at facilitating the endorsement and implementation of new ESC guidelines in daily clinical practise.
In order to increase awareness of the new ESC guidelines, a summary of the guidelines are made by Belgian experts in the field. These summaries highlight the most important recommendations and changes in the management of cardiovascular diseases.
The full documents of the guidelines are available for free from the ESC website, via the following link: ESC guidelines
