  Purpose

This observational registry will characterize contemporary stroke prevention in Canadian adults with atrial fibrillation, and provide clarity in understanding physician preferences for the various oral anticoagulants available in the Canadian marketplace. This study will determine the patient profiles of those selected for the various therapies available in Canada and provide an understanding of the factors involved in drug selection and management.

Further study details as provided by Canadian Cardiovascular Research Network:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine how Canadian physicians assess stroke risk in adults with atrial fibrillation and make therapeutic decisions around anticoagulation [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the adequacy of anticoagulation in treated patients [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To understand how new oral anticoagulants are incorporated into clinical practice [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To assess quality of life in patients with AF [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To evaluate how physicians select between rate and rhythm control options for AF [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To evaluate regional differences in care [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To compare management strategies between primary care physicians and cardiovascular specialists [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
