The Heart-to-Heart AF Clinical Intensive initiative will review the challenges with determining AF status & co-morbidities, clinical practice guidelines, and the recent CABANA trial.

TARGET AUDIENCE

The program is targeted to electrophysiologists, cardiologists, and other healthcare professions who diagnosis and treat patients with atrial fibrillation.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Recognize the clinical consequences of AF including the impact of AF on hospitalizations, the implications for health care resources, and the importance of using therapies that specifically impact this outcome
  • Define the challenges associated with achieving sinus rhythm in patients with AF and the rationale for making sinus rhythm an important achievable goal in specific patient subgroups
  • Define the challenges and benefits associated with rate or rhythm control strategies in patients with AF and the therapeutic options for each strategy
  • Understand the role of catheter ablation and drug therapy for the management of AF as it relates to a variety of personalized issues, such as AF type, symptoms, age, co-morbid conditions, and patient preference
  • Employ an evidence-based approach for reducing thromoboembolic risk in patients with AF
