Brief Summary:
This is a national, multicenter, cross-sectional, observational study within a convenience sample of Internal Medicine departments from 100 hospitals in Spain which agree to participate in the study. This study will be a cross-sectional chart review which will require the collection of data from medical records and from face-to-face interviews conducted during the inclusion visit. Physician interviews are needed to collect three variables of interest, recommended by the Spanish Society of Internal Medicine as necessary data about profile and management of NVAF patients: cognitive deterioration based on the patient's responses, physician's assessment of the patient's life expectancy, and physician's opinion of the antithrombotic treatment previously prescribed. The investigators will only provide their opinion on previously prescribed therapies (i.e. prescribed before F2F). Hospitals to be contacted for the study include those known to participate in observational studies in Spain; the hospitals will therefore not be a random sample of Spanish hospitals.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Demographics (age, sex, living environment) of patients with NVAF attending Spanish hospitals by antithrombotic treatment type (including absence of treatment) [ Time Frame: Approximately 6 months ]
  2. Clinical characteristics (bleeding, myocardial infarction, stroke) of patients with NVAF attending Spanish hospitals by antithrombotic treatment type (including absence of treatment) [ Time Frame: Approximately 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical Characteristics (bleeding, myocardial infarction, stroke) associated with the administration of oral antithrombotic treatments [ Time Frame: Approximately 6 months ]
    Clinical Characteristics (bleeding, myocardial infarction, stroke) associated with the administration of oral antithrombotic treatments (i.e.Vitamin K Antagonists (VKAs), New Oral Anticoagulants (NOACs), antiplatelet drugs, or combinations of anticoagulant and antiplatelet drugs

  2. Estimating the rate of compliance to treatment and by calculating the proportion of patients treated in accordance with guidelines among the patients treated with oral anticoagulants [ Time Frame: Approximately 6 months ]
    Evaluate current clinical practice in Internal Medicine departments in Spanish hospitals according to the European Guidelines by estimating the rate of compliance to treatment; and by calculating the proportion of patients treated in accordance with guidelines among the patients treated with oral anticoagulants
