SA Heart on Wouter Basson

Posted on Monday, 24 February 2014 14:26

SA Heart does not condone unethical behavior of any kind.

The South African Heart Association (SA Heart) is a body aiming to promote the science, education, professional interest and fellowship of health care workers in the sphere of cardiovascular health in South Africa.  This includes support for and maintenance of standards for quality health care.

The Health Professional Council of SA is the body tasked with the maintenance of health care standards and protection of the public in matters of health care in South Africa.  

After following due process, the HSPCA found Dr Wouter Basson guilty of unethical behavior. SA Heart upholds the finding of the Health Professional council of SA on Dr Wouter Basson.

SA Heart does not condone unethical behavior of any kind.

Dr Wouter Basson is not a member or the SA Heart Association, and his unethical conduct occurred prior to his qualification as a cardiologist and his involvement with cardiovascular care.

SHARE registry

Posted on Thursday, 15 August 2013 14:36

The SA Heart registry SHARE has been restructured this year. It is envisioned that SHARE II will consist of a suite of multiple independent but standardized prospective registries or independent studies which are housed under a single umbrella under the auspices of the South African Heart Association. The aims and objectives of all the SHARE related registries will be to collect, and measure important patient related information and outcomes that can then be analysed and used in a manner that fulfils the purpose of SHARE II – that is, to improve patient care. SA Heart and the South African Cardiovascular Health Care Community at large have recognized for several years, that the absence of a national resource, which is able to provide standardized consistent reliable accurate validated information about the care and outcomes of patients with heart disease, is a major limitation in the country’s ability to strive for and achieve best evidence based practice and improved patient care. We hope that you will share our vision for SHARE II. While Prof Mpiko Ntsekhe chairs the Registry working group, Elizabeth Schaafsma remains the contact person for registry related matters elizabeth@vodamail.co.za .
