The Disparities in Stroke Outcomes and Care Delivery in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation study uses the Florida-Puerto Rico Stroke Registry to determine novel data on disparities in stroke care and outcomes for patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) in an actual hospital setting. The study evaluates clinical practice for AF detection and treatment in stroke patients within the large stroke hospital systems of care setting, representative of stroke practice and a multi-ethnic patient population in the state of Florida and Puerto Rico. The results of this study will be of critical importance for secondary stroke prevention through the identification of gaps in stroke care for patients with AF, thereby informing and supporting the need to develop targeted interventions to reduce disparities in diverse populations, as well as to improve systems of care for all stroke patients with AF.
