Needs Statement

Need: Novel oral anticoagulants are increasing in use and pharmacists need to be aware of efficacy and safety issues.

Target Audience

1. Summarize the pharmacology and indications for the novel oral anticoagulants
2. Illustrate how pharmacists can impact the safe and efficacious use of the novel oral anticoagulants
