Abstract

Introduction: The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommended direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) for a variety of indications as equal alternatives to warfarin, and stated that the patient's values and preferences should be used to guide choice of agent in a shared decision making process [1]. However, uptake of DOACs had been patchy and slow across the UK [2]. Identifying the perceived barriers to using DOACs could help to develop strategies to overcome these and enable their use where appropriate.
Aim: The study aimed to investigate the attitudes and perceptions of professionals towards oral anticoagulation, and the choice between warfarin and the DOACs.
