AF ACTION INITIATIVE CONSENSUS GROUP 

An international group of leading researchers and clinicians have lent their expertise to the Atrial Fibrillation Action Initiative as members of the consensus group.

Each member has drafted a summary paragraph on their topic of expertise for inclusion in the AF Action Initiative consensus document, along with an in-depth supplement incorporating data to support their recommendations.

Consensus group members are featured in video interviews throughout this site, providing clinical advice and analysis related to AF and stroke prevention.
