SDM4AFIB – a practice-based randomized trial of Anticoagulation Choice vs. usual care
- Trial protocol
- Trial registration
- Normalization in practice of Anticoagulation Choice in preparation for the clinical trial
- Trial results – decisional outcomes
This work was funded by grant RO1 HL131535-01 from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health.
