Objective
This one-day workshop is for healthcare professionals who intend to take their facility through the AF accreditation process.

Outline

Part I – The Background and Science of Atrial Fribrillation — Learn the background and current science of AF as it relates to assessment, treatment and management. Learn current research findings which include the prevalence and costs of AF, risk assessment tools, choice of treatment strategy, new medications, and new oral anticoagulants.

Part II –AF Accreditation — Gain an understanding of the science of process improvement as a continuous learning and building strategy leading to improved patient care and outcomes for AF patients. Learn how these process improvement strategies will position your facility to meet future expectations in the new healthcare landscape.

Part III – The Application Process — How to Get Started — Learn step-by-step how to access and navigate the online documents, submit your baseline data, and successfully complete the application for AF Accreditation.

Part IV – The Accreditation Tool — Expect to come away with a detailed explanation of each item statement contained in the AF Accreditation Tool, along with examples of supporting documentation that reviewers use to determine if criteria are met. Attendees will learn how to perform a gap analysis of these criteria to create a roadmap that determines what care processes need improvement to meet the needs of AF patients and thus lead to better clinical and performance outcomes.

Part V – Essential Components — Learn the seven key areas in which a facility must demonstrate expertise.

Part VI – Shared Practices — Best practices lead to better patient care processes and better outcomes. Attendees will be encouraged to share best practices, processes, and procedures related to the care of AF patients.
