Within Europe and the Asia-Pacific, the Atrial Fibrillation Better Care (ABC) pathway is the gold standard integrated care strategy for atrial fibrillation management. Atrial fibrillation diagnosis should be Confirmed and Characterized (CC) before implementation of ABC pathway components: (1) „A‟- Anticoagulation/Avoid stroke; (2) „B‟- Better symptom management and (3) „C‟- Cardiovascular and other co-morbidity optimization. Pharmacists have the potential to expedite integrated care for atrial fibrillation across the healthcare continuum -hospital, community pharmacy and general practice. This review summarizes the available evidence base for pharmacist-led implementation of the “CC to ABC‟ model
