30th ANNIVERSARY HIGHLIGHT VIDEO
Managing Anticoagulation During the COVID-19 Pandemic
AC Forum will continue to offer guidance on how best to protect your patients and staff while providing anticoagulation management during the current pandemic. Check back often for new updates!
In recognizing the impact of systemic racism on health disparities, the Anticoagulation Forum has established the Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Allyship (IDEA) Committee. Through the IDEA Committee, the AC Forum will work to increase awareness and promote diversity in our leadership, membership, and programming. We hope our members will engage in this initiative to re-evaluate their current practice, reduce health inequities, and improve the quality of care for all patients.
