Assessment of patients on warfarin therapy
When assessing the quality and safety of warfarin therapy, the wishes of the patient should be taken into account. Options for anticoagulation should be discussed with the patient and the choice based on their clinical features and preferences
Good anticoagulation control is indicated by:
TTR >65% and no INR values >5 or <1.5
Poor anticoagulation control is indicated by any of the following:
two unexplained INR values >5 or one unexplained INR value >8 within past 6 months
two unexplained INR values <1.5 within past 6 months
