hi everyone!

i'm a pst trainer from missouri. i work for 1 of the 4 idtf's in the country. i'm trying to connect with other trainers from all over the nation to compare stories, training tips, ideas and general networking on anticoagulation.

if you deal with patients taking coumadin (warfarin) and want to test at home, i've been training on the coaguchek xs roche meter. the market is booming since cms expanded coverage to atrial fib, pe and dvt.

i hope to make some new friend here!

Oh my, I'm sorry.....

PST=Patient Self Tester

IDTF=Independent Diagnostic Testing Facility

Hope that helps!

Hee hee, I'm a PST and PSD, but I no longer participate in IDTF. FREEDOM at last!

I currently work as a PST RN trainer as a side job. Do you still do this? I notice your post is from last year. I LOVE this job. What company do you work for?
