About Us

Physicians' Academy for Cardiovascular Education

The rationale for establishing the PACE-CME, the Physicians’ Academy for Cardiovascular Education comes from the recognition that physician education plays an increasingly important role in our efforts to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. This has never been more critical than in today’s information age, where the science of medicine and innovation progress at such a rapid pace that the practicing physician simply cannot keep up. Yet, important scientific and clinical discoveries are rapidly reshaping therapeutic approaches to many common diseases, particularly in cardiovascular medicine.

The goal of PACE-CME is to help physicians assimilate the proven findings of scientific research into the day-to-day practice of clinical medicine, all in the interest of improving outcomes in patients.

Mission PACE-CME

To improve the cardiovascular health of patients by providing a forum for the review, exchange, and assimilation of new scientific findings underlying cardiovascular disease and accelerating the translation of this information into clinical practice patterns.

PACE-CME: Educational programmes

PACE-CME offers programmes in a variety of educational settings which all continue the time-honoured tradition of physician-to-physician education, supported by a web-based education platform.

On this website an overview is provided of educational news, relevant publications, teaching resources such as expert opinions and slide lecture presentations derived from the different educational programmes conducted under auspices of the PACE-CME.

Funding & Disclosures

PACE-CME received funding via unrestricted educational grants from different companies.

As one of the co-founding partners of the goodCME Practice group we have pledged to uphold the following four core principles in Independenmt Medical Education and CME. Also see goodcmepractice.eu.

  • Appropriate education: Educational activities should have clear learning objectives that are derived from a coherent and objective process that has identified performance gaps and unmet educational needs. The education must be designed to positively reinforce existing good practice and effect a sustained change in daily clinical practice as appropriate.
  • Balance: Balance needs to be evident in content, faculty and review. Content has to be developed independently of the sponsor and reflect the full clinical picture within the framework of the learning objectives.
  • Transparency: All relevant information should be disclosed to the learner so that they understand fully how the content has been developed and presented. This includes the terms of the financial support, relevant disclosures of faculty and organisations involved in the development of the scientific content and the presentation of the programme.
  • Effectiveness: We strive to post-activity evaluation, measure satisfaction, knowledge uptake and intent to maintain or change behaviour in line with learning objectives.
