ABOUT THE AF TURNAROUND CAMPAIGN
 
 

Atrial fibrillation (often referred to as ‘AF’) is the most common arrhythmia (an arrhythmia is when your heart doesn’t beat at a regular rhythm)1 and if left untreated can increase the risk of stroke.2 If you are considered to be at risk of having an AF-related stroke, you may be given information by your healthcare professional on medicines to help prevent this.2

AF Turnaround provides tools and information to help people with AF have conversations with their doctor about living with AF and therapies to prevent AF-related stroke.
