Stroke prevention & management in AF

As part of ‘Bringing the ESC guidelines into daily practice’, this educational programme is a joint venture between ESC and industry partners in favour of our community.

Atrial Fibrillation

At ESC, scientific excellence and educational activities are in everything we do. Most of the ESC activities are centred on the dissemination of knowledge and the implementation of research.

‘Stroke Prevention & Management in Atrial Fibrialltion’ falls under the family of evidence based and needs driven educational initiatives. Hence, in view of ensuring the move toward increasing evidence-based initiatives and needs-driven, EHRA Needs Assessment in this regard is about to start.

The objective is to target the delivery of an educational programme to fill identified gaps and allow for improved delivery of education with tangible results evaluated through outcome measurement.

Moving toward more needs-driven, evidence based education

The Needs Assessment is to explore and deepen the understanding of the best practice recommendations and a practical indications guide in the field of Atrial Fibrillation.
EHRA will:

  • Run a detailed needs’ assessment on current implementation
  • Design a customised educational programme from identified gaps
  • Deliver that programme
  • Measure performance improvement through outcome measurement approach.

The Needs Assessment will provide concrete details on the clinical challenges experienced by practitioners outlining the perceived and unperceived needs of the HCP for the delivery of best practice care in the field.
