In order to provide an appropriate care, nurses must have a basic understanding and specific skills to be able to contribute to an oral anticoagulation primary care program, including some basic and specific knowledge on this therapy.
A right performance in the service will help achieve an optimal INR (international normalized ratio) control and to reduce bleeding-related complications, and will provide patients’ education. These are the main aims of nursing care for such patients.
A clinical case is reported of a 65-year-old non-ambulatory patient that was included in an anticoagulation program. A nursing assessment was carried out based on Marjory Gordon's functional patterns. A nursing care plan was then developed, including nursing outcomes classification (NOC) criteria and nursing interventions classifications (NIC). The expected outcomes for the nursing care plan were achieved.
