The Oral Anticoagulation Reversal Knowledge Centre is intended to provide healthcare professionals with accurate information on the approaches to oral anticoagulation reversal for patients who experience or are at risk of significant bleeding, or require surgery.
Non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are being used increasingly for the treatment of conditions such as atrial fibrillation (AF), venous thromboembolism (VTE) and thromboprophylaxis as a viable alternative to oral vitamin K antagonists. Bleeding is a serious risk with any of these treatments, so it is important that physicians understand the options for managing this risk.
Content is arranged within the following sections:
Disease management: referenced and illustrated information on blood coagulation, bleeding risks with anticoagulation and management of these risks
Oral anticoagulants: information on oral vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) and non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs)
Publications digest: expert commentary of relevant recently published articles
Symposia and congresses: presentation slides and videos taken from sponsored satellite symposia at ISTH and ISICEM 2015
Resources: links to key papers, phase III trial slides and an upcoming events calendar

The Anti-Coagulation Video Channel* is intended for primary care practitioners and specialists involved in the treatment and follow up care of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) or venous thromboembolism (VTE). It provides an overview of how to prevent stroke and systemic embolism in nonvalvular AF patients and how to prevent and treat VTE.
Users can expect to find the following videos readily available on the video channel with regular updates:
The benefits of dabigatran in preventing stroke in atrial fibrillation patients (Hans-Christoph Diener, Gregory YH Lip and John Eikelboom)
Dabigatran for the treatment and prevention of DVT and PE (Samuel Z Goldhaber)
The safety profile of dabigatran (Hans-Christoph Diener, John Eikelboom and Jeffrey Weitz)
Healthcare professionals should return often to avoid missing out on new content.
*The Anti-Coagulation Video Channel has been supported by an educational grant from Boehringer Ingelheim, who provided the videos, and is intended for healthcare professionals outside the USA, Canada and UK.
The Thrombosis Educational Portal is intended for healthcare professionals involved in the treatment and management of venous and arterial thrombosis. This resource is organised around the following sections:
Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS)

This EACCME-accredited obesity CME series contains three CME modules, which are ideal for healthcare professionals looking to improve their understanding of obesity as a serious medical illness.
Module 1 – Understanding Obesity
Learn more about obesity as a serious and complex medical illness including comorbidities and complications, the complex factors that influence its development and the cornerstones of an effective weight-management strategy.
Module 3 – Rationale for Lifelong Behaviour Change
Explore the factors affecting maintenance of weight loss, the importance of implementing permanent behaviour changes to prevent weight regain and the components of a successful long-term weight-management strategy.

... remains associated with high mortality and severe complications. Until recently, guidelines on IE were mostly based on expert opinion because of the low incidence of the disease, the absence of randomized trials and the limited number of meta-analyses.
The 2009 ESC Guidelines on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of IE8 introduced several innovative concepts, including limitation of antibiotic prophylaxis to the highest-risk patients, a focus on healthcare-associated IE and identification of the optimal timing for surgery. However, several reasons justify the decision of the ESC to update the previous guidelines: the publication of new large series of IE, including the first randomized study regarding surgical therapy; important improvements in imaging procedures, particularly in the field of nuclear imaging; and discrepancies between previous guidelines. In addition, the need for a collaborative approach involving primary care physicians, cardiologists, surgeons, microbiologists, infectious disease (ID) specialists and frequently other specialists— namely the ‘Endocarditis Team’—has been underlined recently and will be developed in these new guidelines.
The main objective of the current Task Forcewas to provide clear and simple recommendations, assisting healthcare providers in their clinical decision making. These recommendations were obtained by expert consensus after thorough review of the available literature. An evidence-based scoring system was used, based on a classification of the strength of recommendations and the levels of evidence.
