Learn Antithrombotic Therapy
CareInternet.net/DBA C.A.R.E. Clinical Research offers progressive learning modules on antithrombotic therapy. The first module introduces the main concepts of thrombosis and antithrombotic therapy. Heparin, low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH), thrombolytic agents, warfarin, aspirin and other antiplatelet agents are discussed. Mechanisms of action, indications, contraindications, complications and dosing methods are described. Subsequent modules develop the major treatment indications in more detail. Pertinent medical literature is referenced with hyperlinks. A multiple-choice test follows each module. Following completion of the test, immediate feedback on performance is available as well as a discussion of the correct and incorrect answers.
Each learning module incorporates a didactic section, a multiple choice test, and a detailed discussion of the test. These three parts are designed to work together so that the learner acquires new information from each part. Do not become discouraged if a test question requires some knowledge not given in the didactic section. Complete each module in the proper order (didactic section, test, test discussion). When you finish, you'll be surprised and pleased to see how each section increases your knowledge.
Module 2 is the demonstration module of our 5 learning modules covering the rationale and delivery of antithrombotic therapy. Our format combines didactic instruction with case management through multiple-choice questions. The learner receives detailed feedback on performance with appropriate literature citations for further learning. After the introductory module, subsequent modules cover major clinical indications for antithrombotic therapy. The modules are designed to enhance the knowledge base of pharmaceutical representatives, nurses, pharmacists, physicians and others who work in the health care industry.
