RELY-ABLE Long Term Multi-Center Extension of Dabigatran Treatment in Patients With Atrial Fibrillation Who Completed the RE-LY Trial and a Cluster Randomised Trial to Assess the Effect of a Knowledge Translation Intervention on Patient Outcomes
To establish the long term safety of dabigatran etexilate and to assess the efficacy of a knowledge translation intervention on the prognosis, cardiovascular risk profile and quality of care in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF).
Treatment, parallel group design, safety study.
Since the objective of this trial is safety, there are no primary efficacy endpoints. Safety will primarily be determined by the occurrence of major bleeding.
