Proudly hosted by the University of Ottawa Heart Institute and Heart & Stroke, the Canadian Women’s Heart Health Summit is the only event of its kind and has become the national reference point for health professional seeking up-to-date knowledge of women’s heart health.

Building on the success of the 2016 and 2018 Summits, we are assembling national and international experts and stakeholders to further advance women’s heart health. Together, we will transform and enhance Canadian women’s lives through research, awareness, policy development, and care.

This is an accredited opportunity for knowledge exchange for a variety of stakeholders including primary care providers, cardiologists, gynecologists, pharmacists, nurses, cardiac rehabilitation providers, allied healthcare providers, researchers, policy-makers, community partners and women with lived experience.

Summit Objectives

  • Summarize the latest evidence regarding the prevention, identification, and treatment of heart, brain and vascular conditions affecting women across their lifespan;
  • Identify emerging areas in research and clinical practice centered on heart, brain and vascular conditions affecting women across their lifespan.
  • Explain gaps in research and treatment related to heart, brain and vascular disease in women and delineate strategies for addressing these gaps;
  • Apply the latest guidelines and best practices and implement clinical practice changes in order to better meet the needs of women at risk of or living with heart, brain and vascular conditions.
