A prospective, non-interventional, multicentre, Canadian registry of adults with atrial fibrillation. Now recruiting GP, Cardiology and Internal Medicine investigational sites.

Status: Clinical trial registration - pending

This observational registry will characterize contemporary stroke prevention in Canadian adults with atrial fibrillation, and provide clarity in understanding physician preferences for the various oral anticoagulants available in the Canadian marketplace. This study will determine the patient profiles of those selected for the various therapies available in Canada and provide an understanding of the factors involved in drug selection and management.

Primary Objective: To determine how Canadian physicians assess stroke risk in adults with atrial fibrillation and make therapeutic decisions around anticoagulation.

Trial Design:

This registry will include two phase::

Phase 1: Retrospective chart audit of 1000 Canadian adults with atrial fibrillation who were treated in the previous 12 months.

Phase 2: Prospective recruitment of 3000 consecutive adult Canadian with atrial fibrillation over a 12 month period.

Study Design: Observational

Intervention: None

Length of Study: Up to 10 years

Project Start: 2012

Project Completion: Ongoing

# of Patients: Phase 1 - 1000, Phase 2 - 3000

Patient Population: Atrial Fibrillation

PRESENTATIONS: None available
