Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common form of arrhythmia and one of the leading causes of thromboembolic stroke. Because its prevalence increases with age, it is estimated that more than 6 million individuals will be affected with AF by 2050. It is critical that cardiologists, neurologists, and other clinicians are able to accurately assess and manage stroke risk, identify and utilize effective treatment strategies, and improve long-term outcomes in their patients.
This live stream program will highlight the diagnosis and management of AF and guidelines to improve the evaluation of stroke risk and appropriate use of antithrombotic therapies for stroke prevention in patients with AF. The goal of this program is to improve the evaluation of stroke risk and appropriate management for stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
• 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 & 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 healthcare clinicians, case managers, and other clinical decision makers and care team members caring for patients with AF at risk for stroke.
