e-learning | Rivaroxaban for preventing atherothrombotic events

This is a new guideline from NICE advising that rivaroxaban plus aspirin can be used in the prevention of atherothrombotic events, under certain circumstances. It was published in Oct 2019. This is quite a big change in practice.

Rivaroxaban can be used together with aspirin as an option for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in adults with

Coronary artery disease OR symptomatic peripheral artery disease…

…and…

…those who are at high risk of ischaemic events:

  • Aged 65 or over OR
  • Have atherosclerosis in at least 2 areas (eg coronary, cerebrovascular or peripheral arteries) OR
  • Have 2 or more of the following risk factors:
    • current smoking
    • diabetes
    • CKD with eGFR < 60
    • heart failure
    • previous non-lacunar ischaemic stroke.

"LocumDeck does everything you want it to do in an instant and with audit trails.

I absolutely love the facility for receiving Locum's invoices and the facility for signing the Pension Forms electronically and they are then instantly sent with an audit trail! It is fabulous!

You are notified the moment a Locum GP adds availability which is just fantastic, I spend a lot of time just chasing agencies to see if they have availability, so to be notified the moment availability is advertised is a new concept and very welcome! I have no hesitation in recommending LocumDeck - it has already eased my workload!"
