New in CME: Cardiology – A two activity Atrial Fibrillation series

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia, with a prevalence of 1%-2% in the US.1 Risk for AF increases with age – the lifetime risk for AF at age 40 years or older is 25% – and the presence of AF is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.2 Recognizing, classifying, and managing AF are essential to reduce risk for progression, improve quality of life, and prevent early mortality.

In these two interactive courses, learners consider an AF patient care scenario, recognize suboptimal treatment or management, and note changes to improve patient outcomes.
