At this webinar, you will hear from a leading Interventional and Structural Cardiologist and Cardiologist, Electrophysiologist & Pacemaker Surgeon present what's new in the diagnosis and management of Atrial fibrillation (AF). They will provide an update on the new guidelines, evidence and recommendations released by the National Heart Foundation of Australia (NHFA) and the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSANZ). New recommendations on atrial fibrillation, incorporating new evidence that has been graded on the certainty of evidence and the likely absolute benefit versus harm. Evidence and recommendations include the new risk factors (obesity, sleep apnoea, sedentary lifestyle), the use of catheter ablation treatment, combining anticoagulants and antiplatelets, a change in the stroke predictions score (the sexless CHA2DS2-VA score) and recommendations for integrated management.
Through this activity, GP's will be able to:
1. Analyse the risks of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) and apply a systematic approach to the management;
2. Evaluate when patients are at risk of having a Cryptogenic stroke (CS);
3. Discuss when the criteria for an immediate referral of patients is met.
