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 question I like to ask health care employees is ‘Who is this for?’ and ‘Do we have the right people at the table?’ As a health care employee, I see how easy it is to fall into doing for, rather than doing with patients. The voices of the patient, family and caregiver are essential to ensure the patient is central to the direction and focus of the work being done.
