Starting Anticoagulation with Jack

Anticoagulants are medicines which prevent harmful blood clots, by slightly changing the balance of the natural clotting process. Wessex AHSN has worked closely with several clinical and non-profit organisations to create information resources supporting the use of novel anticoagulants.

There are a number of important things to be aware of when starting anticoagulants. Let's hear from our fictional character Jack as he begins taking this medication and talks about his concerns.
