About this event

  • Date and time Mon 7 Jun 2021 from 9:00am to 1:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Cardiology

This webinar aims to provide an overview of the diagnosis and management of atrial fibrillation, from a cardiac electrophysiology perspective. Join this half-day educational session to learn about advanced medical management of atrial fibrillation, ablation-based rhythm control, emerging technologies, and more. 

The learning objectives will be:

  • Learn about the current management of atrial fibrillation including upstream therapies 
  • Understand new techniques in the interventional electrophysiological management of AF 
  • Understand mapping and ablation techniques for atrial tachycardias 

We would like to thank our sponsor Abbott Medical UK Ltd for their support of this webinar. Please note that the scientific programme and content has not been influenced in any way by the sponsor.

This webinar has free CPD accreditation. A CPD certificate with CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards.
