Prof. J. William McEvoy

NIPC Medical and Research Director, Chair of Executive Council

Welcome to our January NIPC e-Bulletin. I hope you had a nice Christmas and New Year holiday. I’m excited for 2024 because I am confident this year will be a strong year for NIPC and CVD prevention in Ireland. 

Our new CEO, Dr Sandra Ganly is a hugely exciting addition to the team. We also have a new Model of Care for Integrated Cardiac Rehabilitation, which is a MUST read for you all. Implementation of this new Model of Care is vital and I encourage you to spend time on this, I know that NIPC will do all it can in this regard.

I also hope 2024 will be a banner year for NIPC research and we are now in the late stages of preparing the submission of our INTERASPIRE principle results paper for publication in a major international medical journal. Also exciting is our getting the green light from the European Society of Cardiology to start EuroASPIRE 6 study this year. I am confident that, with NIPC as the coordinating centre, we will have strong Irish representation in EuroASPIRE 6. Please reach out to me via my email if you are interested in having your centre participate in EuroASPIRE6, noting that we expect some at least basic experience with research and access to an ethics committee.

In addition, NIPC is continuing to grow and provide more educational offerings than ever before, so please keep an eye out for forthcoming notifications. For example, coming up soon is the ever-popular Demystifying the ECG workshop, Saturday 23rd March. Places are limited!

Now is also the ideal opportunity to grow your CV and enhance your career with one of our postgraduate courses (more on those below) but be sure to check out the NIPC portfolio of leading postgraduate opportunities in Preventive Medicine and Cardiovascular Health.

Many Thanks
