Edoxaban: ENGAGEing in Individualisation of DOACs

Overview

Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) have revolutionised the treatment of venous thromboembolism and atrial fibrillation. By the time edoxaban was approved in 2015, healthcare providers already had a few years of experience with using dabigatran, rivaroxaban and apixaban and determining which is preferred based on patient characteristics. This webinar will review the use of edoxaban, with a focus on its special features in relation to other DOACs and practical tips for its use in clinical practice. This webinar is the third in a series of six webinars from the ISCP focusing on the A to Z of CV Pharmacotherapy. Led by moderators Claire Lew (Singapore) and Ann Leung (Hong Kong), it includes a speaker presentation from Doreen Su-Yin Tan (Singapore) and a discussion from panellists Gheorghe-Andrei Dan (Romania) and Oskars Kalējs (Latvia) that will examine the importance of DOACs, through consideration of real-world examples, live discussions and audience Q&A.

This live webinar is EBAC accredited. 1 CME credit will be granted upon confirmation of successful attendance.

This is an independent activity run by the International Society of Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy (ISCP). The ISCP has been provided support to develop this webinar by Menarini APAC through an unrestricted educational grant. The supporter has had no influence on the content of the programme or provided any funding to Radcliffe Cardiology.
