AFib Stroke Prevention
The Alliance has a number of outreach activities to help lessen the effects of stroke among older adults. One such example is the Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) Optimal Treatment Task Force, an umbrella group where organizations can collectively advocate for increased research and improved education on balancing stroke and bleeding risk in the treatment of AFib in older patients.
The Task Force has produced a number of important resources including an expert consensus document on optimal treatment, physician, and patient surveys that explored the gaps in communication that impact treatment, a Silver Book on thrombosis and AFib, a pocket guide to the guidelines, and submitted comments to federal agencies.
