Atrial Fibrillation Study Patient Partner

Posted • Last updated


Open to Provincial Region, Patient partners across the province

This is a study exploring how patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) use anticoagulant medications and how that impacts strokes, deaths, and health care costs. Patient perspectives are important to us for how we decide what to emphasize in the research and especially for how we communicate the research results as they emerge (e.g. WHAT we say, HOW we say it, to WHOM we say it).

More Information:
Patient partners’ roles can be based on their skills and interests. Their primary role is to help with communicating the study findings by recommending ways and places to share the results, helping us write information for patient groups, and helping us develop reports on the research findings that are easily understood by the public. If interested, they will also be invited to jointly present the findings to researchers at venues where possible.
