Be recognised as Syncope Centre of Excellence!
STARS is compiling an international database of Centres of Excellence that specialise in managing syncope and syncope-related disorders such as Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTS), specifically those with an innovative approach to improving outcomes and patient quality of life.
The directory will allow patients with syncope to find Centre of Excellence in their area, helping them to find the best care. It will also enable general healthcare professionals, such as general practitioners, to source centres that they can recommend to their patients, safe in the knowledge that they are perfecting the patient care pathway by referring their patient to a Centre of Excellence that has the expertise to manage their condition. There are two ways to be recognized as a Centre of Excellence.
1. Tell us why you are a Centre of Excellence
Please submit a brief description, explaining why you are a Syncope Centre of Excellence — for example, tell us about how many cases you treat each year and/or any research you may be conducting into the management of syncope.
With each description, please supply:
- Your Centre’s contact information (website/email/address/telephone number)
Successful submissions, along with contact details for your Center, will be published on the Centres of Excellence website.
2. Submit a case study
Selected case studies will be published in the STARS Syncope Healthcare Pioneers Report: Showcasing Best Practice in Syncope 2021, which will be launched during World Heart Rhythm Week (7 - 13 June 2021) and listed on the STARS Syncope Pioneers website. Winning centres will not only be listed as a “Centre of Excellence” on the Centres of Excellence database, but they will also receive a certificate acknowledging them as an Syncope Pioneer.
Each Case Study must have:
- A title (max 25 words)
- An author or group name, location & country
- A text submission of no more than 400 words
- An appropriate image to accompany the case study
Please structure your case study as follows: an introduction, brief outline of service, care pathway and/or treatment; results; and conclusion. The conclusion should include implications for patient/service benefits.
SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2022 REPORT WILL OPEN LATER THIS YEAR
