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 ...

Personalised management with the use of new mobile and integrated care tools targeting three outcome determinants inpatients with atrial fibrillation. University of Antwerp
Regular exercise improves health and leads to cardiac remodeling known as the athleteU+2019s heart.
However, emerging data suggest that exercise-related pressure and volume overload may result in
detrimental remodeling of the right ventricle (RV) or atria. This has been linked to arrhythmias and
sudden death in athletes.
In this project, the horse will be used as an animal model for exercise-induced cardiac remodeling ...
