April 2003 — This consensus statement provides a simple way to characterize an episode of Atrial Fibrillation. It is the result of a collaborative project of the Working Group on Arrhythmias and the Working Group of Cardiac Pacing of the European Society of Cardiology and the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology, now known as Heart Rhythm Society.
May 13, 2015 - The Heart Rhythm Society, in partnership with the National Stroke Association, developed an survey initiative that sought characterize the impact of stroke on AF patients and their caregivers; gaps in knowledge and perspective among physicians and patients; and barriers to effective communication and optimal anticoagulation use.
November 18, 2014 - The Heart Rhythm Society convened a research symposium on December 9–10, 2013, in Washington, DC, that focused on the prevention of atrial fibrillation (AF) as well as AF-related stroke and morbidity.Attendees sought to summarize advances in understanding AF since a 2008 National Institutes of Health(NIH) conference on this topic and to identify continued knowledge gaps and current research priorities. This resultant whitepaper was developed in collaboration with and endorsed by the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) and the Canadian Heart Rhythm Society (CHRS). It summarizes the deliberations of the attendees in an effort to accelerate progress toward preventing AF and its consequences.
