Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Week 18-24 November
The Heart Foundation is running an Atrial Fibrillation (AF) awareness campaign in the week of 18-24 November. Download the poster for more information about the campaign goals and activities for GPs and the general public.
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.
