The National Anticoagulation Initiative aims to decrease strokes in at-risk patients with Atrial Fibrillation (AF), by promoting appropriate, safe and locally available oral anticoagulation. The scalable National AC initiative, which is lead by Professor Sir Muir Gray (of Better Value Healthcare), has been working with influential thought leaders since 2012 to discuss treatment, best practice and benchmarking, with the aim of taking this forward into more populations nationwide.
