An observational study of direct oral anticoagulant awareness indicating inadequate recognition with potential for patient harm.
Olaiya A, Lurie B, Watt B, McDonald L, Greaves M, Watson HG. J Thromb Haemost. 2016;14:987-990.
Anticoagulant medications are known to be high-risk for adverse drug events. This study found that many physicians fail to recognize risks associated with direct oral anticoagulants or their effect on anticoagulation tests. These results raise concern for patient harm due to insufficient knowledge about these medications.

This systematic review found limited evidence linking engagement of patients in safety to improved safety or clinical outcomes, with the exception of programs to encourage self-management of oral anticoagulants.

The authors provide guidelines to help manage risks and ensure the safe administration of oral anticoagulant therapy in the United Kingdom.
Scobie S, Thomson R. London, England: National Patient Safety Agency; 2005.
Created in 2001 to institute changes in health care across the United Kingdom, the National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) presents their first report of patient safety incidents. The two-part report begins with a general discussion of incident reporting, the basis for a national reporting system, and the development of the Patient Safety Observatory. The second part builds on this framework by discussing how the acquired data can be used and translated into safer health care strategies. The report itself encompasses more than 85,000 collected incident reports with analysis, comparisons, and case studies to illustrate important safety issues for future efforts. This represents the first of a series of expected reports from NPSA on patient safety data to be published.
