“Our Vision is to improve the health and wellbeing of patients with Heart Rhythm Disorders”
Our Mission is to advance the understanding and management of Heart Rhythm Disorders
CHRD provides a forum for translational research into heart rhythm disorders. The group has a large clinical research program as well as an established experimental, computer simulation and expansive animal research programs in the area of arrhythmogenesis. A particular focus of the group has been the mechanisms, consequences, treatment and prevention of Atrial Fibrillation.
Investigators conduct cutting edge research encompassing:
- understanding why cardiac arrhythmias occur and working on better ways to treat them via scientific and clinical pathways
- exploring the relationship between atrial fibrillation, blood clotting and stroke
- assessing the burden of cardiac arrhythmia in the community and the health system
- understanding the patient experience and providing targeted education to improve quality of life
