StopAfib.org was recently featured in an article on Patient Web Exchanges Provide Benefits, which talked about how patients with better social networks have better outcomes.
There are plenty of atrial fibrillation patient discussion forums and social networks. Below are some places you may want to check out, some of which I hang out at pretty regularly:
- A-fibcures Forum — Non-pharmaceutical cures for afib
- AFIB Support Forum — Support group for those challenged with afib
- Lone Atrial Fibrillation Forum — For those with lone atrial fibrillation (LAF means no heart disease) — this is THE place for dietary approaches to afib
- P Atrial Fib Support — For information and emotional support to make afib more bearable
- Atrial Fibrillation Association UK — Newer AF support group created by the Atrial Fibrillation Association in the UK
- Daily Strength Atrial Fibrillation Support Group — Less busy as a discussion forum, but provides patient journals
- Atrial Fibrillation Blog — Provided by StopAfib.org for your comments and discussion
For future reference, these discussion forums are also listed here at the Atrial Fibrillation Blog, under Afib Forums, and in our Patient and Caregiver Resources at StopAfib.org.
For tips on joining and participating in these discussion forums, read this full Patient Discussion Forums article.
