Global Heart Hub published in the European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing

Global Heart Hub is delighted to share that an editorial on our Cardio-diabetes Think Tank has been published in the European Society of Cardiology’s European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing, “Cardiovascular disease and diabetes care: patient and healthcare professional advocacy priorities from the Global Heart Hub Cardio-Diabetes Think Tank”.

In 2022, Global Heart Hub held a Cardio-Diabetes Think Tank to develop consensus on actions that need to be taken to address the growing burden of diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Across the world, diabetes affects almost half a billion people, who have a twofold increased risk of CVD. The patient-led think tank brought together leading representatives of key international CVD and diabetes patient, nursing, primary and secondary care organisations, to produce a consensus report outlining specific, tangible actions needed to improve care for patients with these concomitant diseases. It calls for key players in both communities to work together to implement these actions, putting patients at the centre of decision-making to enhance cardio-diabetes outcomes.
