The Society mostly educates our industry, but providing great communication tools that professionals can use and take into the community, or educate their peers, is a cornerstone of what we do.
Our EHAC program promotes public awareness that heart attacks have "beginnings."
Our EHAC brochure can be downloaded, or customized so hospitals can put their own logo on the piece.
Badges are available on our store.
We focus on the industry, which focuses on the general public. As more hospitals do more community caring outreach, we want to help.
Once professionals learn the early signs and symptoms of a heart attack, for example, we want them to share that learning.
Learning about EHAC and taking the oath is just part of the equation.
"I understand that heart attacks have beginnings and on occasion, signs of an impending heart attack may include chest discomfort, shortness of breath, shoulder and/or arm pain, and weakness. These may occur hours or weeks before the actual heart attack.
I solemnly swear that if it happens to me or anyone I know, I will call 9-1-1 or activate our Emergency Medical Services."
Formerly known as the Society of Chest Pain Centers, the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care will focus on facility accreditation and certification for Chest Pain Centers, Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS), Heart Failure (HF), and Atrial Fibrillation (A-fib). In addition, SCPC will provide certification for Chest Pain Center Coordinators, nurses, administrators and Chief Financial Officers looking to be compliant with CMS guidelines for Quality, Cost and Customer Satisfaction.
