  • Overview

    This educational program is designed to equip healthcare professionals (HCPs) with the knowledge and skills necessary to accurately identify and manage patients who have atrial fibrillation (AF), which increases the risk of ischemic stroke. The program aims to address the critical need for early screening, keep HCPs up-to-date with the latest advancements, and ensure personalized care in the management of anticoagulation therapy.

  • Target Audience

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the interdisciplinary team, which includes cardiologist and internal medicine, as well as other healthcare providers involved in managing patients with Atrial Fibrillation and Venous Thromboembolism.

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to: 

    • Discuss appropriate diagnostic criteria and challenges faced in screening patients who may be at risk for blood clots due to either AF or VTE
    • Identify appropriate candidates for oral anticoagulation when AF or VTE is detected
    • Develop evidence-based, individualized treatment plans for patients with an indication for oral anticoagulation
  • Accreditation and Credit Designation Statements

GLC is jointly accredited by the American Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
