Crowdsourcing Consensus on the Utilisation of Antiplatelet Therapy in NSTE-ACS

Join the Crowd

Join your colleagues from across the globe to influence the way in which NSTE-ACS patients are managed post-PCI.


On behalf of the International Society of Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy (ISCP) and Radcliffe Medical Education, thank you for your interest in taking part in this innovative crowdsourcing project, made possible with an unrestricted educational grant from AstraZeneca.

You will appreciate the important role clinical guidelines play in the practice of medicine. However, they are often outdated in relation to the latest data and empirical evidence. To address this, we are taking a novel crowdsourcing approach to pool the insight and practices of cardiologists from across the globe and will distil the prevailing beliefs and practices in a consensus statement, which we are aiming to publish in a peer reviewed journal in early 2021. The specific area of focus is on the use of monotherapy and DAPT in NSTE-ACS patients at high bleeding risk.

Based upon critical emerging data, the ISCP, in partnership with Radcliffe Medical Education, proposes an innovative crowdsourcing methodology, to create and publish a sound practice-based consensus on the treatment of high bleeding risk NSTE-ACS patients, following PCI.

To help shape this we are looking to recruit thought-leader cardiologists and other prescribers from across the globe to complete this survey. Interested participants should:

  • currently manage ACS patients
  • be able to prescribe antiplatelet therapy
  • have an understanding of ACS/antiplatelet literature

Registration for this project has now closed.

We are currently analysing the data and looking forward to sharing the results with you later this year.

Steering Committee

To execute this exciting project, the Steering Committee of leading, global experts in ACS, alongside the valuable input of the crowd, will develop practice-based consensus and high-quality educational material for global dissemination.
