Description: Anticoagulants are used for many reasons, including the treatment or prevention of venous thromboembolism and the prevention of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation. Managing anticoagulants effectively is very important to help maximize efficacy while minimizing bleeding risk. This CME activity helps clinicians understand key elements of anticoagulation management around areas such as determining risk, anticoagulant selection and initiation, and long-term management. The educational material provides information on the most recent national and international guidelines, summaries of FDA approved oral anticoagulants, useful clinical protocols, and decision making algorithms.
Educational Objectives: Participants in this CME activity will have a better understanding of anticoagulation and will be able to more safely and effectively evaluate the need for anticoagulation, initiate anticoagulation, and handle long-term management situations according to evidence-based guidelines and protocols.
Target Audience: This self-study activity is appropriate for any clinician involved with anticoagulation initiation or long-term management.
Accreditation Information: The University of Michigan Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
