Activity Description

With over 33.5 million people worldwide with atrial fibrillation and an estimated 900,000 people in the United States affected by venous thromboembolism (VTE), direct oral anticoagulation (DOAC) use is on the rise. Use of any anticoagulant medication, however, increases the risk of bleeding and may further complicate patient outcomes. Of particular concern are major bleeds occurring in critical sites such as in the case of intracranial hemorrhage (ICH). This activity will evaluate the clinical impact of acute major bleeding and examine safety and efficacy data surrounding the use of oral anticoagulant reversal agents. Faculty will discuss administration streamlining and dosing efficiency techniques, and an interactive question and answer session will provide learners an opportunity to address lingering questions.

Learning Objectives

The target audience for this activity includes clinical and health-system pharmacists, emergency medicine pharmacists, pharmacy directors, chief pharmacy officers, and managed care pharmacists. At the completion of this symposium, the participant will be able to:

  • Describe the clinical impact of acute major bleeding for patients on oral anticoagulant therapies.
  • Compare and contrast FDA-approved oral anticoagulant reversal agents.
  • Discuss up-to-date safety and efficacy data surrounding the use of oral anticoagulation reversal.
  • Examine strategies to streamline administration of oral anticoagulant reversal agents and dosing efficiency techniques.
