GRASP the Initiative Action Plan
2 September 2014: The GRASP-AF tool was designed to support GPs audit their management of AF patients and help identify patients who had presented to their GP, but had not yet been recorded as having AF.
The number of GP practices using the GRASP-AF tool has now reached more than 2,600.
This newly launched Action Plan builds on the original GRASP the Initiative report launched by AF Association in October 2012, identifying some of the steps that professionals working in primary care can take after running the GRASP-AF tool in order to optimise the treatment of people with AF registered in their Practice.
