Central Alberta Anticoagulation Clinic
Specializing in anticoagulation, our multidisciplinary team collaborates with clients, families and health care providers in Central Alberta to promote positive health outcomes in anticoagulation care. We serve as an accessible resource to mentor and educate clients and health care professionals on anticoagulation management and provide support based on individual needs.
Anticoagulation Clinic services include:
- Treatment for Venous Thromboembolism (blood clot);
- Prophylactic anticoagulation initiation and dosing (Atrial Fibrillation, Heart Valves);
- Anticoagulation for complex clients (pregnancy, cancer, comorbidities, etc.);
- Anticoagulation management for clients with unstable INRs;
- Anticoagulation bridging for surgery or invasive procedures (warfarin interruption, and coverage with Low Molecular Weight Heparin);
- Resource for anticoagulation information for patients, families, health professionals.
Patients are managed and supported in the clinic through education and patient counseling until they achieve stable, therapeutic levels of anticoagulant dosing and demonstrate the capacity to self-manage their disease. Patients must have access to a lab, telephone and hospital, be willing to self inject medication or have someone inject it for them (when LMWH is required), and have an anticoagulation indication that can be treated on an outpatient basis.
