Anticoagulation eLearning Module Release
Blue Stream Academy is pleased to announce the release of our new Anticoagulation Management module, now available on the GP, Nursing & Care, and Urgent & Tailored Care eLearning suites.
Anticoagulation is the use of anticoagulant medicines to help prevent blood clots. These medicines work by interrupting the process involved in the formation of blood clots that can cause blockages to blood vessels resulting in a restriction of oxygen/blood supply to the affected area.
Anticoagulants, therefore, reduce the chances of developing serious conditions such as stroke, and venous thromboembolism, including deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
This module discusses anticoagulation in general, however, some sections are more specific, focusing on anticoagulation for atrial fibrillation and venous thromboembolism.
What does the Anticoagulation Management module involve?
This module provides information on the types of anticoagulants that are available, the indications for their use, how they are monitored, including information on international normalised ratio (INR), as well as advice and considerations for people taking anticoagulants.
Does the module focus on specific medicines?
There are several anticoagulant medicines available, however the anticoagulants that are focused on within this module are the vitamin K antagonist – Warfarin and the direct oral anticoagulants – Apixaban, Dabigatran, Edoxaban, and Rivaroxaban.
