We aim to assess general practitioners’ (GPs') use of thromboprophylaxis guidelines in the management of patients with AF and their reasons for not using thromboprophylaxis guidelines. We also aim to assess the weight of different factors in GPs' thromboprophylaxis decision-making process in patients with AF within the Australian general practice settings. We are conducting an online survey among GPs practising in general practices in Australia. The study was approved by the University of Western Australia Human Research Ethics Committee (RA/4/20/6366).
