The study also wants to find out more about the patient's knowledge on the importance, risks and benefits of treatment with this drug group.
Patients with irregular heartbeat not caused by valvular heart disease who will start treatment with a blood thinner will be asked by their treating cardiologist to complete a questionnaire related to their knowledge and fear of possible bleedings or stroke (blockage or rupture of a blood vessel to the brain) due to the intake of a blood thinner. The treating doctor will complete a similar questionnaire. The study plans to involve 15 cardiologists and 300 patients in Belgium.
