At least 1/3 ischaemic strokes occur as a result of atrial fibrillation (AF). Early detection of AF and appropriate management can reduce the risk of stroke by 2/3. At least 40% of AF is asymptomatic, so case-finding in those at greatest risk of stroke has been shown to be cost-effective, readily acceptable and scalable. This webinar will focus on contemporary tools to diagnose AF.
Need assessment and educational expected outcome
People living with AF face a range of challenges both in understanding and accessing effective care. Even when the care provided is optimal, low adherence can increase the risk of complications. This webinar will complement and enhance the previous webinars by helping health professionals to understand and address patient engagement.
