Project description

The aim of my project is to study rational antithrombotic use in terms of effectiveness and safety in a real-life population with atrial fibrillation. By studying the use and impact of antithrombotics in clinical practice, we want to unravel determinants of treatment success in terms of prevention of thromboembolisms and bleeding complications in a general population with multimorbidity and polypharmacy.
