Atrial Fibrillation Toolkits

NEW DWAC logo

We have developed a range of toolkits for clinicians, pharmacists and patients to help prevent atrial fibrillation (AF)-related strokes.

These toolkits are available via the Don’t Wait to Anticoagulate website, funded through a joint working project between Bayer HealthCare and the West of England AHSN.

These include guidance:

  • for clinicians on the different anticoagulants they can prescribe for treating atrial fibrillation depending on a range of factors; the different patient stroke risk factors; and how to implement positive change in their practice to manage such a condition
  • for patients on understanding their AF-related stroke risks and the different treatments available as well as questions that they should ask their doctor if they feel they are at risk of an AF related stroke
  • for pharmacists when dealing with patients who have been prescribed anti-coagulant medicines.

The toolkits form part of our Don’t Wait to Anticoagulate campaign. Watch this short film to find out more…
