Warfarin - information for your patients
Your patients can record the date of their INR test, the test result, and the warfarin dose they need to take each day.
As part of the 2013 Achieving Good Anticoagulants Practice national program, NPS MedicineWise has developed new resources for people taking warfarin.
The Warfarin Dose Tracker and the Living with Warfarin fact sheet are intended to support your professional conversations with people taking warfarin, or their carers.
NPS MedicineWise developed the resources in response to research carried out with people taking warfarin. The research found that they:
- would use a consistent source of information about the most important aspects of taking warfarin
- prefer to receive information and resources about their medicines from a trusted health professional, like their doctor or pharmacist.
Both the Warfarin Dose Tracker and the Living with Warfarin fact sheet have been extensively tested with warfarin takers and their carers and was enthusiastically received.
