Atrial Fibrillation Education for Patients and Families

When you find out you have atrial fibrillation, you can turn to us to learn more.

At the UPMC Center for Atrial Fibrillation, we believe strongly that education makes a difference in recovery.

We'll help you navigate the options of modern atrial fibrillation medicines and understand what you can do to protect yourself.

By understanding your condition, you can move into a more proactive role, where you can make changes and actively participate in your treatment.

Personalized Atrial Fibrillation Education

Whether you prefer a face-to-face visit with an atrial fibrillation specialist, a videoconferencing consultation, or a video presentation, we'll work with you, your family, and your trusted personal doctor to provide materials and answers tailored to your particular situation.

During your visit with us, you'll receive a binder full of information about atrial fibrillation — not just about the condition in general but about your particular situation.

You can use this information to talk with your doctor and your family so that you can better manage your condition.

Customized atrial fibrillation education is the key to a better outcome and quality of life.
