Strategies for identifying and managing atrial fibrillation

Tuesday, 5 November  2019. 7.30 - 8.45 pm

A recent study estimated nearly one in 35 New Zealanders between the age of 35 and 74 have been diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation (AF) - that’s more than 60,000 Kiwis. And it’s likely there are many more who don’t know they have it.

In this webinar Dr Andrew Martin will discuss strategies for identifying and managing AF in three areas:

  • Awareness
  • Detection
  • Protection

During this online event you will have the opportunity to type questions to Andrew using the onscreen text system. Please note that the webinar may run slightly over time so as many of your questions as possible can be answered.
