Description:
The decision of the Irish Heart Foundation to hold a conference on the implementation of "Building Healthier Hearts", the Government sponsored strategy on the development of cardiovascular services, was an important innovation. It extended the application of the Foundation's mission by bringing together the major interests responsible for the formulation and implementation of policies to combat cardiovascular illness in this country. It should be emphasised that this meeting related mainly to pre-hospital services, care in hospital and rehabilitation. It is planned to hold a further meeting with greater emphasis on and participation from primary care and community health. Co-sponsored by the Irish Cardiac Society, it was attended by forty-two individuals who represented the medical Profession, the Department of Health and Children, Public Health, Health Boards, Patients and other interested parties. The brief was to identify those items amongst the 211 recommendations in the strategy document deemed to warrant temporal priority in implementation. This was successfully achieved by the use of a format, which consisted of an initial presentation of the current situation by a number of individuals who have been involved in the process to date, a series of workshops, and a final plenary session at which the conclusions of the workshops and the priorities-ranked in order of importance -were presented by each group. A discussion followed resulting in the identification of those specific recommendations, which should receive prioritisation. They are presented in this document together with a resume of the proceedings of the Conference and the reasons for their selection. It is hoped that this Conference will help the Advisory Forum and others charged with the difficult task of implementation and that agreed prioritisation by the representatives of the principal parties involved will help to expedite the process.
