Atrial fibrillation: a real-world, practical approach for GPs webinar - 2 May 2019

This education is now closed for enrolments.

Date: Thursday 2nd May

Time: 6.30 - 7.30pm AEST

Speaker: Dr Bradley Wilsmore Cardiologist & Cardiac Electrophysiologist BSc(Hons), MBBS(Hons), PhD, FRACP, FCSANZ, CCDS, CEPS

Overview: What is the GP’s role in diagnosing and treating atrial fibrillation (AF)? Dr Bradley Wilsmore will guide you through identifying AF from other arrhythmias, and compare and contrast safety outcomes of novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs). You will also learn about NOAC reversal in emergencies for anticoagulated patients. There will be an opportunity to discuss the practical application of real-world safety evidence for treatment decisions, using interactive case studies. This webinar includes an opportunity for all participants to take part in an interactive Q&A with Dr Wilsmore.
