With an expected attendance of over 900 professionals, our forum provides the largest venue for open discussion and education on advances in anticoagulant therapy and improved patient care.

The 3-day meeting offers attendees the unique opportunity to meet colleagues from around the world with wide-ranging research interests and expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of thrombotic disorders. Special lectures focusing on recent advances and important issues in anticoagulation therapy are featured, as well as small master classes, a “meet the experts” breakfast, poster presentations of original research, and exhibitors.

The conference is open to anyone in the medical field. Past attendees have been pharmacists, physicians and nurses who provide direct care in the field of anticoagulation.

Patients are referred to our service by a Brigham and Women’s physician, usually the patient’s primary care provider or a specialist such as a cardiologist or hematologist for management of anticoagulation therapy. The AMS is a service dedicated to caring for patients on anticoagulation which is a class of medications also referred to as “blood thinners”. Our service is made up of pharmacists, pharmacy interns, and administrative personnel. Pharmacists will prescribe anticoagulation and required laboratory tests and work closely with the referring doctor under a Collaborative Practice Agreement.

Anticoagulants can be a challenging class of medications to take because they require you to be very diligent in taking them as prescribed to minimize the risk of developing a blood clot of bleeding. If you are taking too little or miss doses of your anticoagulant, you may be at increased risk of developing a blood clot. If you are taking too much or take extra doses of your anticoagulant, you may be at increased risk of bleeding. While being managed by our clinic, it is very important that you communicate often with the AMS so that we can decrease your risk of having an adverse event.

The AC Forum has been an advocate for improved patient care through its endorsement of the use of an International Normalized Ratio (INR) to report prothrombin time results and with its strong support of point-of-care prothrombin time monitoring and the concept of patient self-testing and patient self-management. The AC Forum has been a supporter of home treatment of venous thromboembolism with low molecular weight heparin using anticoagulation clinics as the base for overseeing home treatment programs.
