This WSA webinar will be focused on the detection of atrial fibrillation in stroke patients. The faculty will analyze current evidence on long-term cardiac monitoring from randomized clinical trials and metaanalyses.
1. To increase awareness among stroke physicians and cardiologists about the importance of looking for atrial fibrillation in stroke patients.
2. To provide stroke physicians and cardiologists with up-to-date evidence on cardiac rhythm monitoring post-stroke.
3. To enhance discussions about future research needs in the field.
