This educational video is part of a series called Latest frontiers in anticoagulation therapy and recorded during an EBAC accredited session held on January 12, 2018
The overall objective is to provide an expert perspective on appropriate use of NOACs in clinical practice
Educational objectives of the CME session were to:
- Review and summarize recent clinical evidence on non-vitamin K antagonist anticoagulants (NOACS) in patients with atrial fibrillation and trombosis
- Provide clinical guidance, based on novel insights on safety and tolerability, on management of patients in challenging situations
- Provide an expert perspective on the appropriate use of NOACs in clinical practice
