IMPACT-AF is a study researching how care for people with Atrial Fibrillation (AF) can be improved.

 

Over 200 health care providers in Nova Scotia have joined IMPACT-AF, along with over 1200 of their patients. Half of the health care providers (and their patients) have access to web-based tools which offer individualized patient care recommendations based on current guidelines and best practice approaches.  The other half continue with usual care for 12-months.
