Description

This Atrial Fibrillation workshop is designed for Healthcare professionals who wish to be more effective in their diagnosis and management of individuals with atrial fibrillation (AF).

AF affects about 1.5 million people in the UK. It can double the risk of death at any age and is a major cause of stroke – yet often remains undetected. Interactive lectures and practical sessions delivered by expert practising clinicians will ensure that you have the knowledge and practical skills necessary for the early diagnosis and effect treatment of this arrhythmia, enabling you to reduce the risk of complications and support your patients in their management of this condition.

Breakout sessions and group discussions will enable you to learn in an informal and supportive environment.

You will learn to:

Recognise the impact of atrial fibrillation
Discuss the physiology of the ‘normal’ heart and the pathophysiology of AF
Identify causes, risk factors, symptoms and complications of AF
Understand the impact of AF and related diagnosis techniques
Assess stroke risk in people with AF
Implement national guidelines to effectively manage patients with AF using tools such as GRASP-AF
Treat AF symptoms and use anticoagulation (including newer therapies) to reduce stroke
Our courses are removed from the website at least two days before the start date, so that students have all necessary information for their studies when they begin. Many of our courses fill quickly and are removed once all places are sold so we advise early booking to avoid disappointment.
