Evolutionary changes in health care have pushed patient safety and management to the forefront of practice. Antithrombotic medications are ranked amongst the highest risk medication groups. As such, the management and prevention of thromboembolic disorders have emerged as important patient safety priorities and provide ideal opportunities for pharmacists wishing to increase their involvement in patient care. This program is designed to help pharmacists gain the knowledge and confidence needed to take a role in the management of patients with, or at risk of, thromboembolic disorders.
Managing Patients on Anticoagulants consists of two parts. Part 1 is on-line pre-work that will provide theory and essential foundational knowledge for Part 2, a one day workshop. The workshop will consist of six sessions featuring both didactic lectures and case-based learning led by expert physicians and pharmacists. These sessions will then be followed by integrated case studies developed to allow learners to apply the concepts learned throughout the workshop.
Who Should Attend?
Pharmacists looking to acquire knowledge and skills to safely and effectively provide care for patients on anticoagulants.
