Study Summary

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia in the world, with significant morbidity and mortality. With appropriate oral anticoagulation, the risk of stroke due to atrial fibrillation decreases by 64%. Although atrial fibrillation is commonly diagnosed and treated in the Emergency Department (ED), oral anticoagulation is significantly underprescribed. Underprescribing has been attributed to a lack of empowerment and deferral of prescribing to longitudinal care clinicians. Using a convergent parallel quantitative-qualitative design (mixed-methods), we propose a stepped-wedge cluster randomized trial design with the implementation of a clinical decision support (CDS) tool in adults with new-onset AF that are OAC-naïve and at significant risk for stroke. In parallel, we will use qualitative approaches to evaluate clinician facilitators and barriers to tool utilization as well as patient satisfaction and engagement with the tool.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
