Updated guidelines on Antithrombotic therapy


Updated guidelines released on antithrombotic therapy, thrombosis prevention
 (ACP INTERNIST WEEKLY: In the News for the Week of 2-14-12)
The American College of Chest Physicians released updated guidelines last week on antithrombotic therapy and prevention of thrombosis.
"The new guidelines are an update of the organization's previous edition, which was published in 2008, and differ in several important ways, according to the authors. For example, the new guidelines adhere to a more rigorous methodological standard for assessing and interpreting study results, attempt to use clinically meaningful end points (when available) to draw conclusions regarding diagnosis and therapy, and report conclusions and recommendations in a form more useful to clinicians. In addition, each panel of experts responsible for developing the guidelines included a practicing clinician who was not involved in research, with the goal of making the recommendations more relevant to routine clinical practice. Input on appropriate resource use was also sought from experts in the field when determining the strength or weakness of recommendations."
