Pioneering deck of cards created to support AF diagnosis and management in primary care

27th June 2016

As part of the work of the Atrial Fibrillation Programme at the AHSN NENC a card deck to support AF diagnosis and management in primary care has been created.

Endorsed by the Atrial Fibrillation Association and the Stroke Association, the cards act as a resource designed to help GPs manage their patients with AF more effectively. The cards contain top tips, self-assessment checklists, anticoagulant information and references to patient and professional material.

Developed by a range of prominent healthcare professionals, the AF cards have been distributed to almost 2,200 GPs across the North East and North Cumbria.

An electronic version of the card deck is now available to download.
