AF Survey

This survey has been initiated and funded by an Alliance between Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharmaceuticals Ltd and Pfizer Ltd (the BMS-Pfizer Alliance), working in partnership with Anticoagulation UK, the AF Association and Arrhythmia Alliance.

Anticoagulation UK needs your help!

Why are we doing this?

This research will be used to understand the information currently provided to patients when they are diagnosed with atrial fibrillation to see if patients are receiving the most up to date information and if any changes are needed.

To reassure you….

The research will be conducted in line with all applicable legislation and guidelines which include the:

  • Market Research Society (MRS) Guidelines
  • British Healthcare Business Intelligence Association (BHBIA) Legal & Ethical Guidelines
  • Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) Code of Practice and Data Protection Legislation.

What’s involved?

As part of this, Anticoagulation UK is looking for patients who have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation in the past 18 months.

The research will take the form of a short online survey of no more than 10 minutes that can be completed on either your phone or a laptop.  You also have the option of completing a postal survey if you would like to do so.

What are the intended outputs from the research?

The outputs from the research will be incorporated into a PowerPoint report.

What will the outputs be used for?
