A case that changed my practice - a near miss with warfarin

Comment

INR monitoring is a hugh problem with some patients. We are not supposed to prescibe warfarin without some evidence of ongoing INR monitoring, so be are damned if we do prescribe, and damned if we don't. Under such conditions, it makes sense to use anticoagulation therapy that does not rely on warfarin. Paul Radnan, Pharmacist clinician And Independent Prescriber
