NOAC Education aims to organise a number of symposia across a variety of relevant topics, providing cutting-edge clinical guidance from a panel of experts in the field.

Peter Verhamme presenting at the Antidotes & Anecdotes symposium.

These interactive, CME-accredited sessions are designed to address clear gaps in the knowledge and practice of the global healthcare community, and inspire best practice through innovative educational techniques. To learn more about past and upcoming symposia, use the menu to select the symposium of interest.

Symposium Overview
Antidotes & Anecdotes: Real-world control in NOAC therapy
15 October 2016
In cases of atrial fibrillation, clinicians must also balance risk of stroke versus risk of internal bleeding. But in terms of emergency management, which is the greater threat? And how do NOAC ‘antidotes’ affect management strategies? This symposium answered these questions by providing expert insight into downstream emergency management.
Risk & Reward in the Real World (working title)
Coming soon
Despite the wealth of evidence demonstrating their ability to save lives, oral anticoagulants are often avoided by clinicians, owing to the fear of iatrogenic internal bleeding. But if the choice is between an internal bleed and a thrombotic stroke, would the choice be as clear-cut? This symposium will present patient outcomes and real-world evidence to eliminate fears of perceived risk.
