Clinical Standards, Guidelines and Positional Statements

‘Evidence based consensus guidelines promote safe and effective clinical practice’

The Society for Cardiological Science and Technology believe in 3 key aims

  1. To develop and review consensus clinical and/or technological guidelines for the practice of cardiac science
  2. To liaise with guideline development groups of other professional bodies and institutions to represent the interests of cardiac science through the SCST
  3. To provide positional statements on aspects of cardiac science associated with clinical practice standards

Standards Committee

The Society for Cardiological Science and Technology Standards Committee was formed in the Autumn of 2011 to undertake key activities in the development of guidelines; research into aspects of cardiac science; departmental accreditation; and to provide manufacturer liaison information of cardiac science clinical equipment.

‘The strength of the Standards Committee is in the healthcare professionals that form it’

The Society for Cardiological Science and Technology welcomes the interest and involvement of members of the healthcare profession. We require members of the cardiac science profession and other healthcare professions to become involved in the writing and critiquing of guidelines. If you are interested please contact our Standards Committee, by email at
