Canadian Cardiovascular Society

The CCS Clinical Practice Guidelines serve to continually improve the quality of cardiovascular care. They contribute to better patient outcomes, greater cost-effectiveness, and they highlight areas for further research. Guidelines development is a key activity of the CCS, and the presentation of Guidelines is an anticipated event at the annual Congress. In 1976, the CCS published the angina pectoris classification system which, today, is found in patient charts around the globe. Each year, new or updated CCS Guidelines are released, along with companion resources to support knowledge translation and offer a practical approach to patient care. The pocket guides, for example, are always in high demand. Every year, the CCS distributes an average of 30,000 pocket guides!
