Run twice a year for all graduates of the MSc module and those already running anticoagulation clinics, our one-day Anticoagulation Update course is designed for those who are looking for a short refresher course on anticoagulation therapy including vitamin K antagonists (warfarin) and direct oral anticoagulants (DOACS).
As always, this year's updates will include a mix of lectures, workshops and debates led by Professor Fitzmaurice, doctors, nurses, pharmacists and patients. A particular highlight for the June course is Professor Keith Fox, Professor of Cardiology at the University of Edinburgh, who will be presenting data on a brand new risk assessment tool for atrial fibrillation which calculates stroke rate, bleeding rate and mortality in one tool and may well replace CHA2DS2-VASc and HAS-BLED.
