- Determine if an educational intervention aimed towards patients will increase patient adherence and persistence to oral anticoagulation for one year.
- Assess country specific perceptions, system challenges and barriers to the use of oral anticoagulants in patients with atrial fibrillation.
- Create a robust successful model that can be implemented in other practices and networks
