To the members of APAPE
It is with great pleasure that I assume the Presidency of APAPE, together with the whole team that will be the direction for the next biennium. Knowing that I can count on their effort , I commit myself now to all current and future members to continue the work initiated by the previous management.
APAPE was created to represent and serve doctors and other professionals with one purpose: to reduce mortality and morbidity associated with arrhythmic diseases.
For this reason it should be the institution responsible for ensuring that Portuguese patients receive the best treatment according to the state of the art.
We will continue to promote collaboration with other institutions in the field of cardiology, but also outside it, as we are aware that we do not have absolute knowledge and that ideas and solutions result from the discussion.
Developing relations with peer associations at European level will also be our priority, so that we can play a more active role in both training and education in arrhythmology.
Finally, we want to promote research in arrhythmology, especially among young people, as this will always be our best “business card”.
We promise to do our best and we count on your support and collaboration to achieve our goals.
President of APAPE
