Supporting patients taking warfarin
A combination of verbal counselling and written information about warfarin and INR testing is favoured by patients and their carers, but it needs to be given in a paced way and with a chance to ask questions later. 1
The NPS MedicineWise Warfarin Dose Tracker can also be used to support your conversations with patients about INR testing. The passport-sized card can be used by patients to record INR results, changes to the warfarin dose and the date of the next INR test.
