Leadership in Prevention
Cardiovascular disease is the single most common cause of death and disability in Ireland and Worldwide. Moreover, negative trends in diabetes and obesity levels support the clear need to prioritise preventive care.
The evidence for prevention is compelling and up to 90% has been found to be avoidable. There is a real opportunity to transform the design, delivery and outcomes of preventive care in Ireland. The NIPC provides leadership through discovery, training and applied programmes to enable healthier living for all.
Join the NIPC Alliance - Bringing together Institutions, Healthcare Providers, and Industry in preventive action. In addition, the NIPC Alliance offers patients and members of the public a platform for information exchange and discovery with the aim of empowerment and self care.
The NIPC aims to:
Produce a new generation of scholars and leaders in cardiovascular health and disease prevention.
Address priority health needs by driving cardiovascular research in disease prevention and rehabilitation.
Develop innovative models of preventive care and service delivery.
Engage with policy makers and health practitioners to strive for excellence in preventive healthcare.
Enable patient advocacy and empowerment.
