Anti-Coagulation Clinic

pillsWhen it comes to the use of the anti-coagulant drug warfarin, most commonly known by its brand name Coumadin®, safety is our top concern. The Anti-Coagulation Clinic at St. Luke's MSTI is dedicated to:

  • Managing patients' warfarin dosage
  • Monitoring their blood's clotting ability
  • Providing critical information and education about drug and food interactions
  • Supporting patients in the use of this complex therapy

The Anti-Coagulation Clinic is located at our Boise cancer center. Nurse practitioners work closely with the patient's oncologist/physician to ensure that warfarin dosage and blood levels are kept in a safe, therapeutic range for the patient's medical condition.
