12:00 PM – 1:00 PM ET
Please note this virtual program is 12:00PM Eastern, 11:00AM Central, 10:00AM Mountain and 9:00AM Pacific.
This live virtual activity targets healthcare gaps related to the treatment and management of atrial fibrillation (AF), impacting outcomes through guidelines and best practices, appropriate antiarrhythmic use, and shared decision-making.
- By addressing these gaps, you can assess whether your approach to AF management through utilization of current treatment guidelines, individualization of antiarrhythmic use and strategies for shared decision making – could be modified to help close these gaps.
- Expert discussion will guide you in analyzing and identifying appropriate candidates for antiarrhythmic intervention, utilizing clinical trial and real-world data on efficacy, and safety to affect patient outcomes.
- You will also be immersed in dynamic animations utilizing a whiteboard platform to memorably highlight key points related to antiarrhythmic mechanisms of action and consequences related to interactions with other cardiovascular agents.
