Welcome to the Anticoagulation Forum website.

As the premier provider of education and an authoritative voice among anticoagulation professionals, it is the mission of the AC Forum to offer insight and expertise to those of you on the front lines. Our goal is to have a community where physicians, pharmacists and nurses can come to find the latest research, engage in educational programs, and find tools to evaluate and enhance your practice.

Centers of Excellence

Anticoagulation Centers of Excellence logo

Our flagship program, the Anticoagulation Centers of Excellence, demonstrates our commitment to the clinical application of evidence-based practices and improved patient outcomes. This website consists of an expansive online resource library and self-assessment resource. The resource library is continually updated with new materials which reflect the changing landscape of anticoagulant therapies. The assessment provides practices with a road map to achieving excellence in their patient education and care.

A popular feature on the Centers of Excellence website is the Examples of Excellence. We are seeking specific, hands on examples from your practices of solutions to everyday obstacles to excellence in patient care. We ask that you submit a brief description of both the challenge and the solution that you have developed. If you prefer, we are happy to discuss your submission in an interview format, and we will then assist in writing the final piece. Please send submissions and inquiries to: info@acforum.org
