  • Spotlight Series: Anticoagulants and Antithrombotic Controversies for Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation
    Anticoagulation is an important consideration in the management of atrial fibrillation. The goal of this accredited education program will be to provide healthcare professionals with very specific guidance related to what is known and what is not known about novel anticoagulants; identifying the most appropriate patients for their use, discerning their role in patients with non-valvular AF; and preventing stroke and the growing medical care costs associated with atrial fibrillation and stroke. CME/CE Expires 9/1/15
  • Perioperative Bridging of Anticoagulation Therapy
    This module discusses the risk of venous thromboembolism and arterial thromboembolism associated with the interruption of anticoagulation in patients with a history of these events. Risk of arterial thromboembolism in patients with atrial fibrillation and mechanical heart valves in the periprocedural period is also addressed. Preoperative and postoperative management of anticoagulation, accounting for patient and procedural risk factors of thromboembolism and bleeding, are also discussed. CME/CE Expires 12/20/14
  • ENDURING SYMPOSIUM: Atrial Fibrillation Management: Current Challenges
    Case-based presentations are used to highlight the challenges in managing the AF patient whose disease falls between mild and severe. Through panelist debate and audience participation, these cases will help participants understand how current evidence supports patient selection for specific treatments. CME/CE Expires 11/30/16
  • Clinical Review Guide: AFIB Web Course
    This study guide focuses on guideline-recommended and emerging strategies for the prevention of stroke and thromboembolic events in patients with atrial fibrillation. CME/CE Expires 11/3/16 
  • Treatment Options for Patients with Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation
    The activity is directed toward cardiologists addressing the need to effectively manage anticoagulation in patients with atrial fibrillation resulting in reducing stroke risk. The format of the online course is an interactive magazine in which learners may read and review course content, view video interviews with faculty on specific aspects of the course, participate in activities such as quizzes, and self refer to many additional resources that will be provided. CME/CE Expires 10/21/16
  • New Anticoagulants for Stroke Prophylaxis in Patients with Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation
    This educational module discusses the clinical impact of atrial fibrillation (AF), provides a review of the data evaluating the use of warfarin, and details new data evaluating the use of the new oral direct thrombin inhibitor (DTI) and 2 direct Factor Xa inhibitors (DFXaIs)as stroke prophylaxis in patients with nonvalvular AF. The pharmacology of these new agents and their advantages and disadvantages when compared to warfarin is also discussed. CME/CE Expires 5/31/15 
  • Anticoagulation and Antithrombotic Controversies in Atrial Fibrillation
    Appropriately select patients for novel anticoagulants, their potential adverse effects and opportunities to minimize the risk of those effects in individual patients, as well as identify the potential risks, barriers and interventions to improve adherence. CME/CE Expires 11/14/15
