At least 30 million people worldwide live with atrial fibrillation (AF). Despite improved treatment options AF patients still suffer strokes, heart failures, and premature deaths. The German Atrial Fibrillation Network association (AFNET) and the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) initiated development of a roadmap to improve the quality of AF management.
