Patients with NVAF or VTE: Practical considerations for transitioning from warfarin to a DOAC

NHS England has recently published a clinical guide for the management of anticoagulant services during the COVID 19 Pandemic1. The clinical guide states transitioning appropriate patients from warfarin to a DOAC may be considered to avoid regular blood test for INR monitoring.

To ensure non-valvular Atrial Fibrillation and Venous Thromboembolism (DVT/PE) patients who are currently receiving warfarin follow the NHS England guidance1 in response to the pandemic, Bayer have developed a slide set which provides clear information to support you and your patients during this difficult time.
