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.

"Joining NASGP's Locum Chambers in Essex after CCT has been a fantastic decision for me. The Chambers structure provides support with my locum work as well as a peer support network with regular meetings.

The Chambers support also extends to support with complaints when these occur. This is an amazing benefit that helps to minimise the professional isolation that can come with being a locum.

The Instant Book feature within LocumDeck makes arranging sessions easy. Whilst getting things set up initially does take a bit of work, this eventually pays off and the return on this initial time investment is impressive. New features are always being added based on feedback from members. "
