The anti-coagulation clinic is a point-of-care clinic offering instant lab results and one-on-one education with a registered nurse specializing in anti-coagulation therapy.
It is a service to provide quality point of care anti-coagulation management to patients and minimize adverse events associated with anti-coagulation therapy. We strive to provide comprehensive and continuous education to the patient, family and caregivers to increase understanding and the importance of compliance with the therapy.
