Atrial Fibrillation Management - Live Webinar
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia encountered in primary care and affects at least 5% of people in New Zealand over 65 years.
People diagnosed with AF have a higher risk of mortality and are associated with a four to five-fold increased risk of stroke, a three-fold increased risk of heart failure and two-fold increased risk of myocardial infarction and dementia compared to people without AF. Symptom control and prevention remain current goals of management.
Join this live webinar presented by Dr Martin Stiles to learn about the four pillars of AF management, Stroke Prevention, Rate Control, Rhythm Control and Lifestyle Modifications. Also learn about the pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment options as well as monitoring. The role of pharmacists in the management of AF will also be discussed.
