The Role of Community Pharmacy in Post Discharge Management of Patients Initiated on Warfarin

The use of warfarin, particularly in the elderly for stroke prevention in chronic atrial fibrillation, is steadily increasing. While the benefits of warfarin are greatest in the elderly, so are the risk of adverse outcomes and the difficulties of anticoagulant management. Clinical systems need to improve to counter this therapeutic dilemma, as warfarin is likely to remain the only widely available oral anticoagulant for the foreseeable future.
