Direct Oral to Parenteral Anticoagulants: Strategies for Impatient Transition- ON DEMAND

ACCP Virtual Journal Club Webinars

Live Session: Wednesday, May 19, 2021 from 2:00-3:00 PM ET

On Demand: May 19, 2021 to May 19, 2024

See Handouts tab for Continuing Education information on IPCE credits.

Why is this webinar important to you? 
This webinar will present a case study that describes the impact on bleeding rates of two different strategies for transitioning from a direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) to a parenteral anticoagulant: a delayed, clinically-driven strategy versus the standard per-package-insert strategy. Learners that complete this course will be able to discuss current recommendations for transitioning between DOACs and parenteral anticoagulation and to explore evidence on alternative strategies which may be beneficial in select patient populations. Learners will also have a broader understanding of the growing challenges and potential solutions of DOAC management in acutely-ill patients.

Target Audience
Interprofessional team of Physicians, Pharmacists, PhDs, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants.

Learning Objectives
After completing this activity, the learner will be able to: 

1) Evaluate literature which contributed to current recommendations for transitioning from DOACs to parenteral anticoagulation;
2) Analyze new evidence on alternative transition strategies in patients with heightened risk for DOAC accumulation;
3) Assess the need for future research to provide more definitive guidance on DOAC management in the inpatient setting.

To receive credit, learners must attend the complete live webinar or view the complete on-demand webinar; complete a post-course assessment and evaluation.
