Get With The Guidelines Quality® Improvement Program

The American Heart Association’s hospital quality improvement program, Get With The Guidelines, works to improve treatment for, and prevention of, cardiovascular and stroke events through consistent adherence to the latest scientific treatment guidelines. For more than 15 years, Get with The Guidelines has transformed patient care for heart and stroke patients in the U.S., helping hospitals and providers learn the correct treatment, translate guidelines into practice and report the results. This program has saved lives and resulted in more than 375 scientific publications that advance cardiovascular health.

The Emirates Cardiac Society is pleased to support the expansion of this science based program to the United Arab Emirates and look forward to the improved healthcare for our community in four categories:

Heart Failure, AFIB, Resuscitation, Stroke, ACS.
