This is a surveillance and measurement function for patients who require anticoagulation therapy. These patients are at an increased risk of forming a blood clot or have experienced a blood clot recently. The prothrombin time (PT) is used, often along with a partial thromboplastin time (PTT), to help diagnose the cause of unexplained bleeding or inappropriate blood clots.

The international normalized ratio (INR) is a calculation based on results of a PT and is used to monitor individuals who are being treated with the blood-thinning medication (anticoagulant) (such as) warfarin (Coumadin®). While these patients are on Coumadin they will be required to have their blood checked on a frequent basis. A referral requisition is needed from your Family Doctor or Nurse Practitioner.

Polypharmacy refers to the effects of taking multiple medications concurrently to manage coexisting health problems, such as diabetes and hypertension. The negative consequence of polypharmacy is the prescribing and use of too many or unnecessary medicines at dosages or frequencies higher than therapeutically essential. Even though multiple medications are often necessary and can constitute best care for patients, sometimes this can also lead to adverse effects.

Patients whose prescriptions number in excess of six are being evaluated. A special one-on-one consultation is available for them and their family/care givers to review and discuss medications, medication management and their particular medication history. Book an appointment with our pharmacist to take advantage of this program.
