AHRQ Releases Two New Resources to Help Consumers and Clinicians Prevent Dangerous Blood Clots

"These timely, easy-to-read guides provide valuable information on preventing and treating dangerous blood clots," said Acting Surgeon General Steven K. Galson, M.D., M.P.H. "They are also valuable tools for health care providers to use with their patients who are at risk for dangerous blood clots."

The AHRQ guides were developed from toolkits originally created by experts funded through AHRQ's Partnerships in Implementing Patient Safety grant program (http://www.ahrq.gov/qual/pips). The consumer guide, Your Guide to Preventing and Treating Blood Clots, is based on work by Brenda Zierler, Ph.D., R.N. at the University of Washington, Seattle. It is available in both English (http://www.ahrq.gov/consumer/bloodclots.htm) and Spanish (http://www.ahrq.gov/consumer/spblclots.htm). The clinician guide, Preventing Hospital-Acquired Venous Thromboembolism: A Guide for Effective Quality Improvement (http://www.ahrq.gov/qual/vtguide), reflects the work of Gregory Maynard, M.D., at the University of California, San Diego, with contributions from Jason Stein, M.D., at Emory University in Atlanta.

Treatment for blood clots often includes blood thinning medications such as Coumadin(R) (generic name: warfarin). AHRQ recently published Your Guide to Coumadin(R)/Warfarin Therapy (http://www.ahrq.gov/consumer/coumadin.htm) to help these patients better understand their treatment. This guide also originated from an AHRQ-funded patient safety project and is based on the work of James Levett, M.D. and Carla Huber, A.R.N.P., M.S., at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
