National clinical guidelines on AF (NICE CG180) recommend that most people at risk of an AF-related stroke should be prescribed anticoagulation therapy.1 NICE has developed a patient decision aid to help people at risk of AF-related stroke decide if anticoagulation therapy is right for them (and which anticoagulant to take if they choose to do so).
