Target Audience

This program is designed to meet the continuing education (CE) needs of cardiologists, electrophysiologists, primary care physicians, advanced practice providers, and allied health professionals who care for arrhythmia patients.

Learning Objectives

The overall goal of the activities is to enhance learners’ knowledge and their competency to incorporate evidence-based updates in their practice. At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify current and evolving approaches and their limitations for risk stratification of atrial fibrillation patients for thromboembolism, and safe and effective use of novel anticoagulation medications.

  2. Select appropriate atrial fibrillation patients for left atrial appendage exclusion devices.

  3. Identify patients who are candidates for leadless pacemakers or subcutaneous defibrillators.

  4. Describe the indications for device system removal including lead extraction as specified in the 2017 HRS Consensus Statement.

  5. Identify complications from ablations and device implants and patients needing prompt referral to electrophysiologists.

  6. Explain the expected outcomes atrial fibrillation ablation or other invasive management approaches.
