New, oral anticoagulants present one of the biggest paradigm shifts that has ever happened in the world of anticoagulation management. To assure the safe and effective use of these medications, it is critical that practitioners understand their pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic differences. Further, this knowledge must be combined with a critical evaluation of clinical trials on which their approval is or will be based. Finally, hospitals, integrated health systems, and clinics will need to take significant and numerous actions to assure these agents are used safely in a systematic fashion. The goal of this webinar is to provide the knowledge base required to begin taking these actions.
