About UW Medicine Anticoagulation Services

This website contains UW Medicine 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.

UW Medicine Anticoagulation Services is operated by the UW Medicine Department of Pharmacy, and collaborates with multidisciplinary specialties and providers  across UW Medicine to develop and disseminate guidelines and to coordinate the use of antithrombotic agents across the UW Medicine enterprise.  

UW Medicine 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."
