Project Information

Establishing a Multidisciplinary Anticoagulation Clinic in a Residency Program and Improving Residency and Pharmacy Education

Project Description: Little is known about the educational benefits of establishing and maintaining a warfarin clinic within a residency program. Patients established with UF Family Medicine (FM) providers visit the anticoagulation clinic at CHFM Main Street. Patients are first interviewed by pharmacy students who then present the patient to FM residents and collaboratively formulate a treatment plan. The FM resident will then precept this patient with a FM Attending. To assess the education benefits for the FM resident and pharmacy student education, a 10-question survey utilizing a Likert scale will be provided to current residents and students. Different surveys will be developed to cater to the recipient’s training (pharmacy student, current resident, recent graduate). The main outcome for the FM residents will be to assess if they would feel comfortable managing oral anticoagulation in their future practice based on their residency experience. The main outcome for the pharmacy students will be to assess if this clinic experience improved their comfort level with working in a multidisciplinary setting in managing warfarin.
