GameChangers: The FRAIL AF Study

GameChangers: The FRAIL AF Study

Multiple studies highlight the benefits of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACS) with lower incidence of side effects and non-inferiority to warfarin. Join host, Geoff Wall, and guest, Mathew Boyd, as they discuss the FRAILE AF study and whether warfarin may be the best best in older adults.

THE GAMECHANGER: DOACs are recommended by nearly all relevant major medical guidelines as the anticoagulant of choice in atrial fibrillation. A new study has found that in frail elderly patients, warfarin may be associated with fewer bleeding episodes.

Upon successful completion of this course, learners should be able to:
1. Describe the design and results of the FRAIL AF study
2. Apply the results of the Groningen Frailty Index to a specific patient
