Atrial Fibrillation Webinar Series
What’s Covered: This presentation focuses on the identification of current and emerging risk factors associated with AF, recommendations for screening and detection of AF, and explores the strengths and weaknesses of devices used to detect AF as well as an evaluation of the effect of exercise on the risk of AF recurrence. Learning objectives include: identifying and managing risk factors associated with AF, reviewing screening and opportunistic detection of AF, and exploring subclinical AF and considerations for AF and exercise.
Presenters: Dr. Laurence Sterns, Dr. Laurent Macle, Dr. Paul Dorian, Dr. Jeff Healey, Dr. Ratika Parkash, and Dr. Roopinder Sandhu
What’s Covered: This presentation focuses on the acute management of AF and long-term rate and rhythm control strategies, catheter ablation for the treatment of AF and identifies sex-specific considerations for the management of AF. Learning objectives include: highlighting changes around the timing of acute cardioversion of AF, reviewing guideline-based strategies for rate and rhythm control, defining populations who most benefit from catheter ablation and illustrating sex differences in symptom manifestation and risk of stroke amongst patients with AF.
Presenters: Dr. Matthew Bennett, Dr. Jason Andrade, Dr. Clare Atzema, Dr. Martin Aguilar, Dr. Atul Verma, Dr. Louise Pilote
What’s Covered: This presentation features content from the 2020 CCS/CHRS Comprehensive Atrial Fibrillation Guidelines. Learning objectives include: discussion of stroke prevention considerations for patients with CKD and special populations, review of optimal management of antithrombotic therapy for patients with CAD, and exploring anticoagulation in the context of cardioversion.
Presenters: Dr. Laurence Sterns, Dr. Laurent Macle, Dr. Jason Andrade, Dr. Alan Bell, Dr. Kori Leblanc, Dr. Brent Mitchell and Dr. Teresa Tsang.
