Presented by Mel Varvel - NHS Improving Quality and Marion Kerr - Insight Health Economics at National Association of Primary Care ‘Best Practice’ Conference in Birmingham, October 2013
GRASP-AF tool: Identifies patients with a history of atrial fibrillation
Searches for co-morbidities and calculates a CHADS2 (and now CHA2DS2-VASc) score
Searches for current medication- warfarin, aspirin or newer oral anticoagulant
Searches for recorded reasons for NOT treating with OAC
Gives a simple alert for those at high risk and not on warfarin or newer oral anticoagulant
