Have any of you noticed that patients are lacking education on anticoagulation? Is academia not teaching anticoaguation to nurses, expecially in the ADN programs? Does your hospital have a pharmacists do patient teaching on Warfarin/Coumadin or does the nurse do the teaching in your institution? How concerned are you regarding patient safety with those on anticoagulation therapy (AT)? I have just noticed this problem is ongoing and trying to figure out if this is a common problem or if it is only in my area?
Thanks for answering
