We now have many new anticoagulant and antiplatelet drugs for physicians to choose from but more choices means that it can be harder to select the best drug for any given clinical situation.

We’re pleased to welcome two anticoagulation experts from the Ohio State University. Tiffany Ortman is a clinical pharmacist who will be updating us about anticoagulants. And Danielle Blais is also a clinical pharmacist who will be updating us about antiplatelets.
