The program will highlight the diagnosis and management of cardiac arrhythmias which can present as medical emergencies where immediate treatment is needed. Faculty will provide comprehensive updates on the diagnosis, treatment and management in atrial fibrillation. Contributing factors to the onset of atrial fibrillation and anticoagulation management options will be reviewed. Faculty will share “pearls” to aid in the evaluation and assessment of patients seen in daily practice.
- Interpret practice guidelines for atrial fibrillation
- Discuss the methods for atrial fibrillation detection
- Identify appropriate anticoagulation strategies for atrial fibrillation
- Describe unusual contributors to atrial fibrillation
- Develop a team-based approach for evaluation and care of stroke patients with atrial fibrillation
This program is intended for cardiologists, clinical cardiac electrophysiologists, neurologists, general/internal medicine providers, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, allied health care clinicians, case managers, and other clinical decision makers and care team members caring for patients with AF at risk for stroke.
