The novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are as effective and safe as warfarin for stroke prevention in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). However, no clinical trials have directly compared these agents with each other. A number of recent observational studies have used real-world data from the USA and Europe to compare the safety and efficacy of individual NOACs.
This webinar discusses the safety and efficacy outcomes for each of the three NOACs available in Australia, what these outcomes mean for choosing a NOAC in your patients, and the role of reversal agents in anticoagulant choice.

This webinar includes an opportunity for all participants to take part in an interactive Q&A with host speaker Dr Jordan Fulcher .

This education is an RACGP accredited activity, supported by Boehringer Ingelheim.
