Join us for a discussion about successful Anticoagulation Stewardship Program implementation. Dr. Daniel Budnitz from the CDC will describe his work quantifying AC-related harms over the years and where he sees the future going as a public health priority, touching upon his publication “US Emergency Department Visits Attributed to Medication Harms, 2017-2019”.
Stewardship teams from both Johns Hopkins Hospital and the University of Alabama at Birmingham will follow Dr. Budnitz and share their experiences implementing AC stewardship programs at their institutions. A panel will continue the conversation, opening questions to participants.
• Describe the characteristics of Emergency Department (ED) visits for acute harms from anticoagulant use, and why anticoagulants are implicated as the #1 agent for adverse drug events
• Discuss strategies for implementation of Anticoagulation Stewardship programs and how they can reduce adverse events related to anticoagulant use.
