OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
In 2015, the Scientific Initiatives Committee (SIC) launched 2 new initiatives : Snapshot Surveys and Patient Surveys
We hope that all the European EP Centres will join us in our new activities. To this end, if you wish to participate and are not already registered, please join the EHRA Research Network of EP Centres.
The Snap Shot Survey will be used to map the daily Cardiac Electrophysiology (EP) practice in Europe, but unlike online EP Wire Surveys, the Snap Shot Surveys are based on individual studies and at an individual level.It is a limited survey (25 questions max) including consecutive patients for 2-4 weeks.
The first Snap Shot Survey was launched on 12 September 2014, for 6 weeks inclusion period (closing date 27 October) and is about Pre-and Periprocedural Anticoagulation in patients undergoing radiofrequency ablation for Atrial fibrillation.
The protocol is available here.
It is a questionnaire available on Internet dedicated to the patients.
The link to the questionnaire will be handed out to the patients (ambulatory or hospitalised) by nurses or doctors to be completed anonymously.
The Scientific Initiatives Committee (SIC) will be launching a new patient survey in November, over a period of 2 months in the 9 following countries : Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Spain and Sweden.
This patient survey will be carried out among patients with implantable electronic devices. The main purpose of this survey will be to describe in detail the knowledge, values and preferences of patients with an implantable device across Europe. By identifying the education, compliance, experience and concerns of patients in daily clinical practice in Europe, this survey is expected to highlight the gaps between current recommendations and clinical practice and the areas of uncertainties.
Summary of the protocol to download.
The first Patient Survey about Education & Compliance of Patients taking Anticoagulants was dedicated to Patients who have or have had Atrial Fibrillation. It was conducted for 3 months in 8 different countries and languages.
