The campaign will have several layers and the goals are to:

  • raise awareness for atrial fibrillation
  • raise awareness for the importance of a pulse check
  • provide educational support to GPs and practice nurses
  • promote pulse checking for people 60+ (55+ for Māori and Pacific)
  • promote self-monitoring.

The campaign will run at the same time as Global AF Aware Week which is promoted by the Heart Rhythm Alliance.
