Direct Oral Anticoagulants (DOACs) Initiation in Atrial Fibrillation 21/22

The aims of the DOACs Initiation service are to: 

  • Improve patient access to safe and effective anticoagulation initiation through collaboration between the patient’s GP and a Consultant anticoagulation specialist.
  • Offer a cost-effective, standardised and clinically-effective service for Camden patients requiring a DOAC for prevention of stroke in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF). 
  • Support innovation in anticoagulation therapy, utilising evidence-based therapies, where appropriate, in line with local and national guidance, and develop existing anticoagulation services in the community, improving outcomes and patient experience, and reducing costs and inequality of anticoagulation service provision. 
  • Improve continuity of care for patients.
