Overview: Please join us for a contemporary and clinically relevant educational activity which has been specifically designed to address the most frequently encountered clinical challenges in the management of patients with Atrial Fibrillation and the related co-morbidities in the primary care setting. This activity was developed by leading Canadian Experts to provide clinicians with answers to frequently asked questions and key take-away messages that can be applied to real-world practice.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Select personalized treatment options for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation using current Canadian Practice Guidelines supplemented with reassuring “Real World” experience.
- Assess and optimize bleeding risk of atrial fibrillation patients requiring long-term DOAC stroke prevention treatment.
- Recognize the current treatment gap in Canada and take steps at ensuring appropriate dosage selection and long-term compliance with oral anticoagulation among AF patients.
Case 9: Optimizing the Use and Dosing of DOACs in Patients with AF: Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Apply the rationale for the appropriate use and non-use of community-based observational data (real-world data) in clinical practice.
- Discuss real-world treatment patterns with OAC therapy.
- Effectively manage the use and dosing of OAC therapy in patients with AF
