Faculty of patient safety resources

The faculty is forever evolving and looking at ways to improve our approach to patient safety.

As the faculty develops information and resources will be uploaded and shared in this area of the website.

  Training and Educational Resources
Anti-Coagulant Video

Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACS) Apixaban, Dabigatran, Edoxaban and Rivaroxaban are newer anticoagulants now widely used in the UK. They work differently to Warfarin and due to lack of familiarity with the drugs there have been a number of patient safety incidents. It is important staff are aware what these drugs are used for, the difference in dosing and the importance of missed doses in order to keep patients safe. This video has been created for both medical and nursing staff to raise awareness of these drugs.
