European Atlas on the Prevention of AF-Related Stroke
The European Atlas on the prevention of AF-related stroke was launched on 27 November 2014.
The Route Map and European Atlas on the prevention of AF-related stroke is a report that shows the state of play in different countries across Europe on the prevention of AF-related stroke. This comprehensive report presents key data documenting the burden posed by AF-related strokes across Europe, highlights key issues and challenges in implementing best practice and provides examples of successful initiatives that have made a difference to patients in different countries.
Trudie Lobban MBE FCRP (Edin), Arrhythmia Alliance Founder & Trustee, Professor John Camm, St Georges University of London and Arrhythmia Alliance President, and Eve Knight, AntiCoagulation Europe CEO, formed the steering committee which oversaw the development of the report.
Over twenty different clinical experts and patient organisations contributed to the report. It is a powerful reminder that efforts are still needed to improve understanding of the increased risk of stroke in people with AF and to ensure that AF patients in all countries have equal access to appropriate treatment and care to help reduce their risk of stroke.
