The Fort Frances Family Health Team has registered staff trained to support patients on anticoagulation medication (Warfarin/Coumadin) with monitoring of the prothrombin time through the International Normalized Ratio (INR). The goal of the program is to help patients manage their warfarin and to reduce hospital visits due to adverse effects. The RN discusses current medications and supplements taken by patients as well as their diets and lifestyle which can interact with warfarin. Results and required dosage changes are communicated to both patient and providers to ensure a standardized approach and appropriate follow-up. Access to INR services are through provider referral.
