Antiplatelet and Anticoagulation Pharmacology
Presented by: Cynthia L. Webner, DNP, CCNS, ACNP-AG, CCRN-CMC, CHFN
Fibrinolytics, antiplatelet and anticoagulants are not interchangeable medications. Understanding the right situation for use can impact lives. This 2-hour webinar will discuss when to use fibrinolytics, when to use anticoagulants, and when to used antiplatelet medications in patients with acute coronary syndromes, atrial fibrillation, stroke, or venous thromboembolic disease. With patient safety being a high priority, this webinar will discuss safe practice including assessing risk versus benefits, essentials for prescribing, issues in administration, evaluation of effectiveness, and monitoring for adverse outcomes. The challenges of triple therapy will be discussed. Cindy concludes with case studies to help with practical application. From the novice APRN to the most experienced there is something for everyone to learn.
