Atrial fibrillation resources for patients

Patient-centred care – with a focus on patient education, self-management, shared-decision making and caregiver involvement – is recognised as one of the fundamental aspects of integrated care in the guidelines for atrial fibrillation (AF). These resources have been specifically designed to assist with patient education and self-management.

  • What is atrial fibrillation? 
  • Causes 
  • Symptoms 
  • Treatments 
  • Medications and lifestyle management 
  • When to seek medical attention
