The AHSN Network has launched the national ‘Atrial Fibrillation Toolkit’

The AHSN Network of 15 Academic Health Science Networks in England has launched the national ‘Atrial Fibrillation Toolkit’ to address barriers to stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation (AF) with a unique AF Data Tool to highlight improvement opportunities across the AF pathway.

Across England, atrial fibrillation is sub-optimally detected and managed resulting in avoidable strokes which can lead to death or significant disability. Early detection of AF to enable the initiation of protective anticoagulant therapy is vital to save lives and strain on the NHS.
