Navigating the bumps in the road: Multi-disciplinary perspectives on the long-term management of AF patients

Speakers: Prof Stephen Davis and A/Prof David Eccleston

Chair: Dr Christopher Hammett

The NOACs have been available for over 10 years. The first landmark study for SPAF in NVAF patients, RE-LY was published in year 2009. Since then we have seen a number of RCTs and countless pieces of real world evidence studies published. In 2019, it is timely to pause to re-evaluate our options for anticoagulation in AF through the review of meaningful evidence.
The multi-disciplinary faculty will discuss the latest, most meaningful evidence available for NOACs, highlighting the key considerations we should make when choosing the most appropriate NOAC for each individual AF patient.
This will be a case-based discussion with real world examples showcasing how the initial choice of NOAC could have significant impacts on AF patients in the long term.
