First, listen to several episodes from an expert M.D. panel discussion (Links to an external site.) on the development and status of specific/direct anticoagulation therapies. You should start with the introductory episode titled: Moving Beyond Aspirin for Atrial Fibrillation; and then watch 2 or 3 additional episodes. Second, conduct some online research to identify additional information on the specific/direct anticoagulation therapies approved since 2010 (such as FXa inhibitors & thrombin inhibitors listed in your textbook) and any additional information you can find regarding risks and benefits as compared to warfarin.
Compose a brief ~ 300-500 word report regarding your reaction to the panel discussion on novel anticoagulants and additional information you gathered through your own research.
Complete your report with a provocative open-ended question to which your classmates can respond.
Include a list of all references used to answer the questions, and be sure to indicate the source of your answers by using “in-text” citations.
