Course Objectives

This program is designed to provide pharmacists with current information on antithrombotic therapy and to increase their knowledge and skills required to promote the appropriate management of patients. Upon completion of the program, the learner should be able to:

  • Describe, analyze, and critique recent antithrombotic clinical trial results and project their impact on patient care.
  • Discuss agents available and consideration for using in the management pf patients on anticoagulation therapy who are bleeding. This will include decisions on restarting anticoagulation once bleeding issues begin to subside.
  • Discuss, how to use laboratory data to manage transitions in anticoagulant therapy, how laboratory data including standard coagulation assays and DOAC specific tests can guide patient management decisions and the fundamentals of laboratory testing involved in thrombophilia evaluation including antiphospholipid antibody syndrome.
  • Discuss how to approach a new paradigm in use of anticoagulants to manage a specific situation. This will include how to revise the standard approach to therapy that adapts to new challenges thrombosis management are present.
  • Identify current issues of controversy in the prevention of thromboembolism in patients with valvular disease
  • Describe the potential risks and benefits with the use of anticoagulation for treatment and prevention of thromboembolic disease in the extreme elderly patient population. The participant should be able to describe key factors, such as comorbidities and concomitant medications for consideration in development an individualized plan of care and optimal anticoagulant agent selection.
  • Describe the risk of COVID-19 related thromboembolism (TE), appropriate treatment and preventions strategies, including post discharge venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis.
  • Discuss the opportunities available to generate revenue for the anticoagulation clinic including how and when utilize billing codes for home INR management programs and at transitions of care.
  • Describe changes in anticoagulant drug therapy utilization in the United States, discuss the opportunities to improve the quality and safety of direct-acting oral anticoagulants (DOACs) and the role of anticoagulation clinics in anticoagulation management beyond warfarin.
  • Identify and apply electronic health record templates and applications to manage anticoagulation.
