Abstract / Summary

Anticoagulation therapy is well established, yet as a long-term therapy optimal management of patients can be challenging. The impact of excellent anticoagulation services on population health and reduction of budget
pressure is significant, but is there consensus on the best care pathway for patients on anticoagulants? How can patients be supported and optimally managed? This collaborative discussion paper explores a series of questions in relation to optimal anticoagulation management for patients on direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs – also known as new/novel oral anticoagulants or NOACs).
The paper will examine:
• Patient choice in anticoagulation therapy
• DOACs in anticoagulation therapy today
• The official advice for excellent anticoagulation services
• Is there a consensus on a standardised process for DOACs?
• Adherence in DOACs anticoagulation therapy
• The importance of education in a patient-centred approach to long-term anticoagulation therapy
• Initiatives to support adherence for patients on DOACs
Under the guidance of the contributors, the paper gathers questions regarding the current and future issues of anticoagulation therapy, with particular focus on DOACs. It also explores what initiatives have been put in place to perfect anticoagulation management, including working with local pharmacies and nurse-led anticoagulation clinics in primary care.
This paper includes feedback and views from opinion leaders in anticoagulation to prompt a wider discussion on potential areas for development in anticoagulation management for patients on DOACs.
