Cristian Baicus, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy
  Purpose
Randomized study concerning the effect of the number of risk diagrams (with treatment +/- without treatment), the period of stroke risk estimation (one year or five years) and the target of prescription (the patient with atrial fibrillation or the physician himself, imagining she/he has atrial fibrillation) on the intention to prescribe or not oral anticoagulation.

Condition Intervention
Atrial Fibrillation Stroke Other: decision aid

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Factorial Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Official Title: RCT Concerning the Intention to Prescribe/Take Oral Anticoagulants for Atrial Fibrillation Depending on the Number of Risk Diagrams (w Treatment +/- w/Out Treatment), and Number of Years (1 or 5) for the Estimation of the Risk of Stroke.

Further study details as provided by Cristian Baicus, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants Who Prescribed Oral Anticoagulants (OAC) According to the Number of Decision Aid Diagrams [ Time Frame: after seeing the decision aid (5 min) ]
    after regarding the risk diagram, the physician will decide to prescribe/take or not the treatment


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants Who Prescribed Oral Anticoagulants (OAC) According to the Timeframe for Risk Presentation (1 vs 5 Years) [ Time Frame: 5 minutes ]
    the proportion of physicians deciding to prescribe OAC after seeing risk estimation on 1 vs 5 years

  • Number of Participants Who Prescribed Oral Anticoagulants (OAC) According to the Target of Prescription (Patient vs. Physician Himself) [ Time Frame: 5 min ]
    the participant physicians were randomized to prescribe to virtual patients or to imagine that the risk seen in the diagram was that of themselves

  • Number of Participants Who Prescribed Oral Anticoagulants (OAC) According to the CHA2D2s-VASC Risk Score [ Time Frame: 5 min ]
    The proportion of OAC prescription for the range 1-5 of CHA2D2s-VASC scores. CHA2D2S-VASC risk score ranges from 1-5, with higher scores indicating a greater risk of stroke.
