Current Research Studies

Observations study for patients with Atrial Fibrillation

Study Objective:  This registry will establish a ‘snapshot’ survey of the contemporary diagnosis and management of patients with AF amongst cardiologists, general practitioners, stroke physicians, acute medicine physicians, and emergency medicine physicians in the United Kingdom at the time of enrolment, and provide important information on events and management changes over time, allowing comparison of the management of AF patients between medical specialties.

Study Population: Patients aged ≥18 years diagnosed with non-valvular atrial fibrillation, documented by ECG (12-lead, Holter recording, external event recorder, or implantable loop recorder) attending their general practitioner or seen in hospital (either as an in-patient or outpatient) by one of the following specialists, cardiologist, stroke physician, acute medicine physician or emergency medicine physician, during a 12-month recruitment period will be eligible for inclusion.
