Anticoagulation in Atrial Fibrillation Pre-test

The lecture, “Anticoagulation in Atrial Fibrillation,” was presented during the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians’ 2012 Annual Scientific Assembly.

The overall goal of this lecture is to educate family physicians and their practice teams on anticoagulation in atrial fibrillation to close gaps between current and ideal care of patients with atrial fibrillation and stroke risk (whether newly diagnosed or currently on anticoagulation therapy) and cover both office re-design and clinical issues.

This educational initiative assists clinicians in primary care, cardiology, hospitalist care, and others working in anticoagulation clinics to better:

  • Identify at least five risk factors that increase risk of stroke in atrial fibrillation
  • List at least four different strategies, with 2 pros and cons for each, in order to prevent stroke in atrial fibrillation

This activity is supported, in part, by an educational grant from Physicians Institute for Excellence in Medicine.
