Experimental: Alert for AF Program
1) participation in the Alert for Atrial Fibrillation program ) .
Behavioral: Alert for Atrial Fibrillation Program
Participants' baseline knowledge of AF symptoms, and attitudes and beliefs about AF will be assessed using the KABAFS, and patients will receive cognitive-behavioral training directed toward survey responses associated with delay of treatment. Training will incorporate the content developed by the American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF), and participants will receive education about how to recognize an irregular pulse, and how to record the pulse rhythm in a daily log. The PI/RN coordinator will review the completed KABAFS to assess knowledge deficits, and identify attitudes and beliefs about AF that may hinder early treatment-seeking.
Active Comparator: Attention control condition
2) participation in the healthy sleep program
Behavioral: Healthy Sleep
Participants will receive a 45 minute face to face instruction about sleep hygiene
- Changes on the Knowledge, Attitudes, and Beliefs about Atrial Fibrillation Survey [ Time Frame: Baseline, One Month, Two Months ]The KABAFS assesses patient knowledge of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) and the belief factors associated with delay in seeking treatment for AF. Participants will be measured at baseline (before the intervention), and then at 1 and 2 months after the intervention to identify if participants' knowledge and beliefs about treatment seeking have improved and continue to be improved from baseline as indicated by the KABAFS score.
