This meeting aims to provide a broad overview of the diagnosis and management of atrial fibrillation.
A one-day educational session on atrial fibrillation, including diagnostic and treatment approaches. The programme will explore the history of AF, its clinical and ECG diagnosis, epidemiology, pathophysiology and management strategies. The latter will include stroke prevention, rate and rhythm control, the role of interventional therapies such as catheter ablation and cardiac devices.
By the end of this meeting, you will be able to:
- Have a basic understanding of the epidemiology and pathophysiology of AF
- Diagnose AF via ECG recordings, and differentiate from other arrhythmias
- Assess thrombotic risk and choose optimal stroke prevention strategies in AF
- Consider rate and rhythm control options for AF, and understand referral pathways
- Have a basic understand of non-pharmacological approaches to managing AF
Please ensure you book in advance up until 12:00 am the day before, as moving forward future Cardiology events will be subject to a price increase should you book on arrival.
