New care pathway for older multimorbid atrial fibrillation patients
The prevalence of atrial fibrillation (AF) amongst Europe’s elderly population is growing. Associated with more severe strokes, AF is an abnormal heart rhythm with rapid and irregular beating. In the context of multimorbidity, improving the management of AF is vital and requires a holistic approach. In this context, the EU-funded AFFIRMO project will develop, implement and test the effectiveness of a patient-centred approach on older multimorbid AF patients in clinical practice. Specifically, the project will identify different clusters of multimorbidity in older patients with AF. It will also assess the needs of patients, caregivers and health professionals for the comprehensive management of multimorbidity including AF.
