101 To Clot or Not to Clot: A Pharmacist-Led Multidisciplinary Collaboration of Anticoagulation Management

Pharmacist-managed anticoagulation clinics are critical for improving therapeutic outcomes in any health care system. We will discuss a collaborative approach that identifies patients for whom anticoagulation (warfarin) therapy is indicated. It bridges gaps in care in this vulnerable population. This initiative led to development of DVT protocol used by the medical providers. Results have shown significant optimization of anticoagulation care while reducing adverse effects, ER usage, and mortality.
