This website contains UWMedicine recommendations, guidelines and protocols for the treatment and prevention of venous and arterial thrombosis, and the clinical use of antithrombotic agents in ambulatory and inpatient settings.
UWMedicine Anticoagulation Services is operated by the UWMedicine Department of Pharmacy, and collaborates with multidisciplinary specialties and providers across UWMedicine to develop and disseminate guidelines and to coordinate the use of antithrombotic agents across the UWMedicine enterprise.
UWMedicine Anticoagulation Services also provides management of anticoagulant therapy in pharmacist-managed anticoagulation clinics at the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) , Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) and Harborview Medical Center (HMC). Pharmacist providers in these clinics are involved in clinical practice, training and education, and research activities consistent with the mission of UW Medicine and the Department of Pharmacy.
"The goals of pharmacist-managed anticoagulation services include treatment and prevention of thromboembolic disease and minimization of complications of antithrombotic therapy."
