OVERVIEW:

This certificate program is a comprehensive program designed to provide pharmacists with the basic knowledge and skills necessary to care for patients taking anticoagulation therapies. By completing this course, pharmacists can earn 22 hours of continuing education credit while becoming certified in anticoagulation management. The Anticoagulation Certificate Program is conducted in two parts: the self-study and live training seminar. To earn a certificate of achievement, participants must successfully complete all components of the program.

 

PROGRAM OUTCOME:

With expanded use of anticoagulant agents, the number of patients receiving these drugs has increased dramatically. Safe and effective anticoagulation must include a number of key components to avoid complications. These include careful patient assessment, an understanding of the clotting cascade and mechanisms of action of anticoagulant therapies, a detailed focus on factors which influence therapy and knowledge of current guidelines. This certificate program is a comprehensive program designed to provide pharmacists with the basic knowledge and skills necessary to care for patients taking anticoagulation therapies. By completing this course, pharmacists can earn 22 contact hours of continuing pharmacy education credit while becoming certified in anticoagulation management. 

 

HOME STUDY LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Differentiate the pharmacology and pharmacokinetics of UFH, LMWH, warfarin, direct thrombin inhibitors, and factor XA inhibitors
  2. Define the current recommendations for indication-specific intensity and duration of anticoagulation treatment
  3. Recognize strategies used to manage hemorrhagic complications and HIT associated with anticoagulant therapy
  4. Identify appropriate methods to manage antithrombotic therapy during the perioperative time period
The home study portion will be composed of nine separate modules. The required reading pages will be displayed in each module.  After completing each of the sections, you will be required to complete the Home Study Examination which involves case-based learning exercises, multiple choice or true/false questions. You need to score a 70% or better to pass. Learners are eligible for 14 HOURS HOME-STUDY/ 1.4 CEUs) application-based learning activity.

 

LIVE SEMINAR LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Review pathophysiology of thrombosis
  2. Describe the difference in mechanism of action between the new and old antithrombotic therapies
  3. Describe the indications for anticoagulation therapy
  4. Review current treatment guidelines
  5. Evaluate the initiation and dosing of warfarin
  6. Determine factors influencing dosing of warfarin and the appropriate management of out-of-range INRs
  7. Develop assessment tools which account for variables impacting warfarin intensity and dosing
  8. Compare and contrast available point of care devices for anticoagulation therapies and demonstrate correct patient care procedures for testing
  9. Evaluate ‘bridging” therapies for anticoagulation management
  10. Practice assessing patients on anticoagulation therapies through the use of patient cases
The live program involves 8.0 contact hours (0.80 CEUs) of both lecture and simulation training. Participants will focus on the pathophysiology of thrombosis, receive an overview of ACCP Guidelines, discuss indications for anticoagulation therapy, warfarin dosing and monitoring, management of the over-anticoagulated patient and patients requiring procedure management, patient education, and patient interviewing and assessment. Participants will also learn about point-of care monitoring devices, and practice assessing patients through the use of patient cases. At the conclusion of the live program each participant must complete the on-line final exam with a score of 70% or above and a program evaluation in order to receive a certificate of completion.
