The Atrial Fibrillation – Diagnosis and Management guideline is available for External Review until March 10, 2023.

The draft guideline provides recommendations for the diagnosis and management of atrial fibrillation including the primary prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in adults aged ≥ 19 years.

The guideline is organized as management in the acute care and outpatient office settings. The current version of the guideline includes updated recommendations on screening and on the use of anticoagulants as first line therapy.

Although the intended audience of the guideline are primary care providers, patients may have feedback that would help improve the quality of the guideline.

Please visit the BC Guidelines External Review page to download the draft guideline and submit your feedback via our online questionnaire.

The bottom line is because we’re caring for patients. People who know best are those who are receiving the care so it makes logical sense that we would consult with them about their experiences. By connecting with PVN we have been able to educate our teams about the value of patient partners and how important their perspective is in our services.
