Join our expert panel for the upcoming NIPC Series: Managing the Risk and Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation, in support of World Stroke Day, on Friday, 29th October, 13:00 – 14:00 IST.

Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common heart arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) affecting over 11 million people across Europe, rising to approximately 17.9 million people by 2060. If left untreated, AF can lead to series medical complications, including being 5 times more likely to have clot-provoked stroke. 

Dr John Keaney will highlight how healthcare professionals can reduce the risk of AF for patients and Prof Jonathan Lyne will give practical advice on managing AF and stroke risk.
