A direct transfer of knowledge, experience and skills to local centres – this is the most effective form of support. EurAsia Heart Foundation aims to instruct, encourage and assist local specialist professionals on site, and to verify the way in which they apply what they have learned. This improves their existing skills and allows them to acquire new expertise and abilities. Any topics that are relevant to improving the treatment of patients will be discussed. The most difficult procedures will be carried out on site by the EurAsia Heart Foundation specialists themselves – if such an intervention is requested or indicated.
EurAsia Heart Foundation cooperates with leading centres worldwide so that it can cope with the growing demand.
In the first few years, this work focussed mainly on cardiology and cardiovascular surgery in children, young people and adults. Increasingly, however, the enquiries received from foreign centres also relate to other specialist areas, such as gastric surgery, neurosurgery, orthopaedics and oncology.
