Non-invasive imaging to study atrial remodeling underlying the progressive nature of atrial fibrillation. KU Leuven
The education and communication pillars of integrated care for atrial fibrillation. University of Antwerp
The prevalence of atrial fibrillation (VKF) is high and will increase even further. VKF is a major burden for the current healthcare system. Our research group has already conducted various observational studies to map the current shortcomings in the care of VKF patients. In addition, we have also tested several new interventions to optimize the VKF policy. Despite sufficient evidence that an interdisciplinary, nursing-coordinated approach is ...

Rational antithrombotic use in an atrial fibrillation population Ghent University
The associated challenges of an ageing population for social welfare systems and individual healthy aging necessitate more research into effective prevention and rational treatment strategies. Besides the importance of identifying vulnerable elderly in an aging population to better outweigh benefits and risks of invasive procedures or potentially harmful medication, there remains a large knowledge gap in understanding the impact of ...

Rational antithrombotic use in an atrial fibrillation population. Ghent University
The aim of my project is to study rational antithrombotic use in terms of effectiveness and safety in a real-life population with atrial fibrillation. By studying the use and impact of antithrombotics in clinical practice, we want to unravel determinants of treatment success in terms of prevention of thromboembolisms and bleeding complications in a general population with multimorbidity and polypharmacy.
