Update on Management of Atrial Fibrillation in Primary Care

Friday, November 24
9:15 AM - 10:15 AM

Atrial fibrillation is a common and important arrhythmia and increasingly prevalent in our aging population. Stroke prevention is a crucial issue in atrial fibrillation but this talk is not a NOAC talk! Several important aspects of atrial fibrillation will be discussed, including etiology, testing, selection of rate versus rhythm control strategies, and the key messages from the 2016 CCS focused update of the Canadian Cardiovascular Society Afib guidelines will be discussed.
