Hospital Collaboration Project
Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation in Asia This is a prospective observational study on the current practice of stroke prevention for AF in Asia. We propose to recruit 5,000 patients (~1000 patients per country) from 5 countries in Asia-Pacific regions (Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea). Patients who are currently follow-up or newly diagnosed AF in these countries will be enrolled and follow-up for 1 year. Their clinical data on baseline, and 12 months follow-up will be recorded (based on the template of the European AF survey- in collaboration with ESC).
All patients will be treated according to the clinical practice in their hospital or clinic. Data on their baseline demographic information, including the CHADS2, CHADS2-VAS score, HAS-BLED score, clinical events, including death, ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, major bleeding events and morality will be collected via a web-based electronic system based on Case Report form of the EurObservational Research Programme on Atrial Fibrillation General Long-Term study.
