New eTutor Program
Arming the GP in the war against stroke in NVAF Learning outcomes

After completing this program, GPs will be better able to:

  • Discuss stroke risk in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) and describe the evidence on stroke prevention vs bleeding with novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) vs warfarin
  • Interpret the real world safety evidence for the NOACs, as it pertains to patient populations.
  • Assess the impact of patient concerns regarding bleeding in management of AF, and the role of NOAC reversing agents in emergencies
  • Employ new communication techniques to proactively engage in conversation and effectively counsel patients with NVAF in a time-poor general practice environment
  • Engage in shared decision-making that aims to improve adherence to oral anticoagulation therapy, therby optimising patient outcomens

This eTutor program is a 2-hr interactive case-based eTutorial on anticoagulation and management of patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) in general practice, with an emphasis on skills building communication techniques.
