Any PST Trainers for an IDTF here????

  1. 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!

    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?
