Dr Charlotte Bradbury (Consultant Haematologist) discusses the important role primary care has to play in the management of anticoagulation treatment in patients with venous thromboembolism and atrial fibrillation.
  • When managing anticoagulation in primary care, it is important to ensure that each patient is on the most appropriate treatment and dose based on their clinical features, and that treatment is continued for an appropriate duration
  • Direct-acting oral anticoagulants do not require routine coagulation monitoring, and they have other features that may make them preferable to warfarin for anticoagulation in appropriate patients
  • This virtual session will use a case-based approach to provide practical guidance on anticoagulation in primary care, and implementation of the guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, including the 2020 NICE guidelines for VTE
