Abstract

Review of recent evidence with translation to practice for the advanced practice nurse (APN) role is presented using a case study module for “Complications Associated With Oral Anticoagulation Therapy.” The study results showed that bleeding complications were most often due to gastrointestinal bleeding associated with anticoagulants (dabigatran 80% and warfarin 48%). The implications and clinical relevance of these findings for APNs are discussed highlighting best evidence.
