Event description

Description

You are invited to attend our free, one-day innovation marketplace event “Preventing strokes for patients with Atrial Fibrillation (AF) in London” on Friday 11 March 2016, from 9am – 2pm at Hallam Conference Centre in Marylebone, W1.

Why Atrial Fibrillation?

It is estimated that 11,600 AF-related strokes, including 3,200 fatal strokes, could be avoided each year through proper management of this common condition, including better medication management, earlier diagnosis and lifestyle changes. In London, more than 14,000 people with AF and with a high risk of stroke are not on any anti-coagulation treatment at all.

How can we make things better?

Much good work has already been done in this area in London, however there is more we can do to reduce the occurrence of stroke in patients with AF. This event aims to provide an opportunity for delegates to share best practice and discover and test out some of the latest innovations and treatments to support case finding, diagnostics, treatment and management.

About the event

The event is being jointly organised by the London AF network (the three London AHSNs, the London Strategic Clinical Network and NHS England London) and SBRI Healthcare, which is funded by NHS England and run by the AHSNs.
