Take Action Now
TAKE ACTION NOW launched by A-A to improve AF patient care
Two of the most challenging issues facing the effective care of AF patients at risk of stroke the world over are:
- Poor local adoption of international treatment guidelines that recommend anticoagulation for all but low risk patients
- Low patient and physician awareness of AF, its treatment and its consequences
To assist patient advocacy organisations all over the world to tackle these problems, Arrhythmia Alliance launched the Take Action Now – Action Plan. The plan was developed in partnership with AntiCoagulation Europe, the AF Association and Stroke Alliance for Europe to provide practical guidance on how to campaign effectively for the improved management of AF so that stroke risk is properly managed in all those patients for whom anticoagulation therapy is required.
