A NEW online learning module on reducing the side-effects of oral anticoagulants has been launched by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
The interactive programme has been developed for doctors, nurses and pharmacists and takes the learner through key points about these medicines, how to manage the risks and help avoid harmful side-effects that can in some cases result in hospital admissions.
Participants will be able to download a certificate to show they have completed the course which has been approved for CPD by the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom.
Dr Angela Thomas, director of the Haemophilia Centre at Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh Hospital said: “The MHRA has succeeded in delivering excellent material in a user-friendly and very engaging manner. This makes learning about anticoagulants enjoyable. The quiz at the end is a useful test of the learning.”
