Anticoagulation ADEs An Old Problem: A New Focus (Part 1 of 3)
In our January webinar we introduced the "Triple Threat" of Anticoagulation, Diabetic agents, and Opioid medications, and asked our audience whether they needed an in-depth review of the each of these areas. The National Action Plan for Adverse Drug Event Prevention (ADE Action Plan) published by HHS last year has brought these old problems of ADEs back into focus and is signaling the likelihood of payment incentives to prevent the enormous suffering and costs associated with them.
The interest of our Research Test Bed was overwhelmingly positive to address these ADEs, and we are excited to announce a series of three webinars that will provide an in-depth review on Anticoagulation, Opioid medications, and Diabetic Agents.
For the first of the series, we are proud to have Dr. Alan Jacobson from VA Loma Linda as our lead speaker. Dr. Jacobson is a pioneer and leader in the field of anticoagulation management, having implemented innovative strategies within the VA system to improve anticoagulation management and dramatically reducing risk with out-of-range INR and complications associated with anticoagulation therapy.
Dr. Jacobson will share his work in both the inpatient and outpatient settings, and will discuss challenges associated with the new therapeutic drugs which require less monitoring, but bring new risks. Following his presentation, we will hear from Nadine Shehab, PharmD, MPH, of the Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion, CDC, who will address the anticoagulant ADE burden and the anticoagulation safety agenda identified in the ADE Action Plan. After the presentations, they will be joined by an expert reactor panel to discuss key takeaways and respond to questions from our webinar participants.
