Pharmacokinetics and Anticoagulation Service
The Clinical Pharmacokinetics and Anticoagulation Service Guidelines were developed to ensure safe and efficacious dosage regimens through the application of pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic principles and the determination of drug serum concentrations.
The policy/procedure manual outlines standard guidelines which should be followed when providing clinical pharmacokinetic monitoring of the following drugs:
- Direct Oral Anticoagulants
- Direct Thrombin Inhibitors
- Phenytoin (free and total)
- Valproic acid
In addition to the above list UK HealthCare pharmacy
services has guidelines for Heparin Induced Thrombocytopenia (HIT) and the
assessment and management of Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis. View a copy of our Clinical
