European heart society want to know more about living with atrial fibrillation
The European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) has launched a new survey aimed at people with atrial fibrillation (AF), with the goal of finding more about what living with AF is like. The survey has questions on people’s knowledge about their arrhythmia, the sources that are useful for them to learn about AF, and their preferences regarding these sources.
Additionally, the survey will also evaluate the involvement of people with AF in the diagnosis and management of their condition, and the burdens posed both by the AF itself and its treatment options. According to EHRA, by recognising the attitudes, and expectations, of people with AF, this survey will identify the gaps existing between contemporary patient involvement, education, and self-management in European countries and current recommendation of cardiac societies.
EHRA adds that knowledge about the burden that AF (and its management) poses to patients will help to identify areas in which integrated care requires further optimisation. Consequently, the results obtained will help to identify the main areas of uncertainties and suggest avenues of further research.
