Canadian Cardiovascular Society

The CCS is proud to lead the charge in organizing the first Canadian Alliance of Cardiovascular Centres. This alliance aims to facilitate the sharing of key learnings, programs, and resources to centres across Canada, allowing smaller facilities access to the same information large centres have to provide the best possible care to their patients. 

“Working in silos is a flawed concept in medicine and especially in cardiovascular care,” said CCS Past President, Dr. Marc Ruel. “When you centre everything around a specialty, your perspective is limited. However, when your thinking revolves around disease processes, and when you unite specialists with varying viewpoints and skill sets, the result is more informed patient-centred discussions about the best approach to treating each patient.”
