27 November 2014
The Route Map and European Atlas on the prevention of AF-related stroke is a new, comprehensive report which shows what different countries in Europe are doing to improve the prevention of AF-related stroke. The report presents key data documenting the burden posed by AF-related strokes in different countries, highlights key issues and challenges in implementing best practice and provides examples of successful initiatives that have made a difference to patients.

Paolo Binelli, President of A.L.I.Ce, was a key contributor to the report, and the Route Map features A.L.I.Ce.’s awareness campaign on AF, in which free screening for AF is provided along with blood pressure measurement in over 3000 pharmacies across Italy. The European Atlas contains a country profile on Italy, which reveals that Italy has comparatively good data on AF and AF-related stroke compared to other European countries. The prevalence of AF is approximately 1.85% in Italy, and one in four strokes are due to AF. Up to one third of AF patients at high risk of AF-related stroke do not receive anticoagulation therapy as recommended by clinical guidelines, and there are significant differences in practice between cardiology specialist centres and general (internal) medicine.
