Witt, Delate and Clark are members of the Warfarin Associated Research Projects and Other Endeavors consortium, an international group of anticoagulation therapy experts who periodically meet to generate research projects. The consortium has published numerous studies in the last five years that have appeared in peer-reviewed medical journals such as Pharmacotherapy and Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis. This is their first ASHP Foundation award.
"My colleagues and I are very honored that our research was selected for this award," said Witt, senior manager, Clinical Pharmacy Research & Applied Pharmacogenomics, in Aurora, Colo. "We'd like to thank the Kaiser Permanente Colorado pharmacy department leadership for its support of our work, as well as the dedicated staff of the Clinical Pharmacy Anticoagulation and Anemia Service, the care providers who keep our anticoagulated patients as safe as possible."
In addition to Witt, Delate and Clark, five other co-authors of the study were named co-recipients of the Drug Therapy Research Literature Award, including Mark Crowther, MD, (McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario), David Garcia, MD, (University of Washington, Seattle), Elaine Hylek, MD, MPH, (Boston University, Boston), Walter Ageno, MD, (Insubria University, Varese, Italy), and Francesco Dentali, MD, (Insubria University, Varese, Italy).
