AF Association Healthcare Pioneers Report

Showcasing Best Practice In AF

Centres of Excellence

Apply to be a Centre of Excellence 


AF Association is compiling an international database of Centres of Excellence that specialise in managing atrial fibrillation (AF). The directory will allow patients with AF to find Centres of Excellence in their area, helping them to find the best care. It will also enable general healthcare professionals, such as general practitioners, to source centers that they can recommend to their patients, safe in the knowledge that they are perfecting the patient care pathway by referring their patient to a Centre of Excellence that has the expertise to manage their condition. There are two ways to be recognised as a Centre of Excellence.

1. Tell us why you are a Centre of Excellence

Please submit a brief description, explaining why you are an AF Centre of Excellence — for example, tell us about how many cases you treat each year and/or any research you may be conducting into the management of AF.

With each description, please supply:

  • Your Centre’s contact information (website/email/address/telephone number)
  • List of healthcare professionals at your center with expertise in managing AF

Successful submissions, along with contact details for your Center, will be published on the Centres of Excellence website.


2: Submit a case study

Selected case studies will be published in the AF Association Healthcare Pioneers Report — Showcasing Best Practice in AF 2023, which will be launched during Global AF Aware Week and listed on the AF Healthcare Pioneers website. Winning centers will not only be listed as a “Centre of Excellence” on the Centres of Excellence database, but they will also receive a certificate acknowledging them as an AF Pioneer.

Each Case Study must have:

  • A title (max 25 words)
  • An author or group name, location & country
  • A text submission of no more than 400 words
  • An appropriate image to accompany the case study

Please structure your case study as follows: an introduction, brief outline of service, care pathway and/or treatment; results; and conclusion. The conclusion should include implications for patient/service benefits.
