T. Jennifer Walker, ANP-BC, nurse practitioner in the division of cardiology, presented an overview of a study on a virtual case-based educational program that improved provider knowledge on practices for AFib, during the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) 2020’s virtual meeting.
“We found that primary care provider play a significant role in the management of atrial fibrillation,” Walker says in the presentation. “However, evolving afib guidelines make it difficult for community providers to deliver optimal afib treatment. The Atrial Fibrillation and EKG Interpretation Tele-echo Clinic is a virtual case-based program created at UNC to overcome these challenges.” Listen to Walker’s presentation here.
The overview: A Virtual Case-Based Educational Program Improves Provider Knowledge on Best Practices for Atrial Fibrillation included study authors: Zack Deyo, PharmD, BCPS, CPP, Tiffany Armbruster, AGNP-C, Samuel F. Sears, PhD, Lindsey Rosman, PhD, and Anil Gehi, MD.
