Anticoagulation Clinic

Target population

Pediatric and adult population.
Introduction

The Anticoagulation Clinic is an institutional service that provides medical attention, assistance, education, support and monitoring to patients receiving anticoagulant treatment for various indications and in various treatment phases, always taking into account their treating physicians’ recommendations.

Our main purpose is supporting patients during treatment and help them to maintain therapeutic anticoagulation ranges, thus reducing adverse events.

Target population

Our service is addressed to the pediatric and adult populations receiving oral (e.g. warfarin) or injected (e.g. enoxaparin) anticoagulant medications.

Our service is under the coordination of a specialized physician (internist/cardiologist) who is supported by a professional nurse and three nursing assistants. Telephone support is also available during business hours (Monday to Friday from 7 am to 4:30 pm), and there is additional support from a social worker, a nutritionist and a pharmaceutical chemist.

This service allows for multidisciplinary management of anticoagulated patients. Medical attention is focused on providing the best experience to patients and their families, through personalized consultations and telephone support. In addition, it allows to immediately record and report INR at each visit, and dose titration in patients anticoagulated with warfarin. Our service receives support by a Nutritionist and a Pharmaceutical Chemist as needed, as well as medical education activities addressed to patients and their families.
