Program Description:

  • With expanded use of anticoagulant agents, the number of patients receiving these drugs has increased dramatically. Safe and effective anticoagulation must include a number of key components to avoid complications. These include careful patient assessment, an understanding of the clotting cascade and mechanisms of action of anticoagulant therapies, a detailed focus on factors which influence therapy and knowledge of current guidelines. This certificate program is a comprehensive program designed to provide pharmacists with the basic knowledge and skills necessary to care for patients taking anticoagulation therapies. By completing this course, pharmacists can earn 22 contact hours of continuing pharmacy education credit while becoming certified in anticoagulation management.
