Cardiovascular Conference Series: Anticoagulant Therapy – Beyond Clinical Trials

Miami, FL US
April 20, 2017

Patients who have had a venous thromboembolic event are generally advised to receive anticoagulant treatment for three months or longer to prevent a recurrent episode. Current guidelines recommend initial heparin and an oral vitamin K antagonist (VKA) for long-term anticoagulation. However, because of the well-described disadvantages of VKAs, including extensive food and drug interactions and the need for regular anticoagulation monitoring, novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have become an attractive option in recent years.  Dr. Turpie will discuss results from the most recent NOACs trials, and their impact on the prevention and management of anticoagulation. 

Target Audience

Cardiologists, Interventional Cardiologists, Interventional Radiologists, General Internists, Primary Care Physicians, Intensivists, Pulmonologists, General Surgeons, Orthopedic Surgeons, Urologists, Gynecologists, Anesthesiologists, Emergency Medicine Physicians, Hospitalists, Physicain Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Radiologic Technologists, Ultrasound Technologists, Laboratory Technicians,  Pharmacists, Respiratory Technologists and other interested healthcare providers.

Learning Objectives

  • Analyze clinical studies of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) and their impact on prevention and treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE). 
  • Differentiate Phase III clinical trials and Post-authorization Studies of NOACs. 
  • Implement strategies for the proper management and reversal of NOACs.
