Welcome to the June 2018 newsletter. Whilst Nat is enjoying family-time and the World Cup in Russia, the team here at Ward MM has been busy preparing an informative newsletter for you.
The focus of this month’s newsletter is the use of Novel Oral Anticoagulant (NOACs) medications to treat blood clots. Julian Soriano describes the risk factors, prevention and management of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Embolism (PE). Melissa Riley has put together ‘Quick Tips’ on the clinical considerations with using Novel Oral Anticoagulants (NOACs) to treat DVTs and PEs. Saly Rashed has answered your question on how to manage NOAC associated bleeds.
Please see the ‘Latest News’ section for a discussion of the new Aged Care Accreditation Standards and how Ward MM can assist you to address these changes.
Starting from next month, you will receive the Ward MM Newsletter on a quarterly basis to make sure we provide a quality content for you and the email does not clog up your inbox. Our next newsletter will be sent out in September 2018.
Have a great month and stay warm!
