Welcome to the AF Revalidation Tool

A tool to aid GPs preparing for revalidation.

The AF Revalidation tool has been prepared to help GPs prepare evidence of learning, audit and practice improvement that is suitable for inclusion in a revalidation portfolio. The tool also helps tackle an important clinical need: the reduction of stroke risk in patients with AF.

AF presents an ideal revalidation target for practice improvement. Recent developments in risk stratification, the role of aspirin and anticoagulant options all provide an opportunity for the learning of, and reflecting on, new information. Furthermore, AF enables focus on a clinically-important but manageable number of patients, for whom small changes can yield significant improvements in outcomes.

Moreover, GRASP-AF, a free and easy-to-use audit tool, already exists; greatly facilitating the collection of the necessary practice audit data.
