Cardiology is the branch of medicine that deals with diseases of the heart and blood vessels.

This task force aims to:

  • increase the quality of the current articles on cardiology topics by increasing their medical content while keeping them accessible to individuals with no medical knowledge
  • facilitate the creation of new articles on topics in cardiology, so that Wikipedia is a more-or-less comprehensive cardiology resource for the public
  • ensure that articles created on cardiology topics are thoroughly referenced and include up-to-date links to the most recent literature
  • explain the use of evidence-based medicine in cardiology and how it is applied to the care of patients with cardiac and vascular diseases.
  • maintain consistency with the medical manual of style in the cardiology articles
  • increase the number of images attached to articles
  • produce cardiology-themed featured articles based on the above
  • include both traditional and complementary and alternative medicine therapies for illnesses cardiologists typically see and treat
  • improve the blueboxes related to cardiology.
