Screening and diagnosing atrial fibrillation (AF) is vital to implementing guideline-recommended treatment to reduce the risk of stroke. In this activity, an expert panel of pharmacists and a cardiologist discuss risk factors for AF, evidence-based strategies for screening and managing asymptomatic and symptomatic AF, and how multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to care increase screening and improve patient outcomes. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Identify ways that pharmacists can work collaboratively with other clinical colleagues to bridge the gap between patients and healthcare team professionals to improve AF screening, diagnosis, and treatment, Screen individuals who are at risk for stroke due to undiagnosed AF and refer them for further evaluation and treatment, as appropriate, Collaborate with clinical colleagues to ensure that evidence-based, guideline-recommended treatment is discussed and offered to patients with AF to reduce the risk of stroke, Educate patients with AF about the heightened risk of stroke and the importance of anticoagulation therapy.
