    Anticoagulation: Bridging Challenges to Better Outcomes
Atrial Fibrillation: A CME Audio Home Study Program

Course Director: Roger Blumenthal, MD
January 1, 2004 - January 1, 2005


Medical evidence clearly shows that anticoagulant therapy provides major benefits in the prevention of stroke for patients with atrial fibrillation, but a recent survey showed that less than half of patients who are eligible for therapy receive it. Although atrial fibrillation is a condition of the elderly, older patients are less likely to receive therapy than younger patients. This educational activity addresses the issue of undertreatment of atrial fibrillation with anticoagulation therapy, providing the most recent clinical information to providers who diagnose and treat atrial fibrillation.

This program is intended for cardiologists, primary care providers, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care providers who treat patients with atrial fibrillation.
