A structured multidisciplinary approach ensures correct anticoagulation therapy to patients with atrial fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with an increased risk of stroke and mortality. Anticoagulation therapy reduces the risk of stroke in patients with AF. In a structured multidisciplinary AF-clinic correct anticoagulation treatment according to guidelines was achieved in 99% (170 out of 172 patients) compared to 79% (143 out of 179 patients) in the “usual care” period (p < 0.001). We propose establishment of structured multidisciplinary AF-clinics in Denmark to ensure optimal antithrombotic treatment and adherence to current guidelines.
