“Platelet-ing It Safe: Dual Antiplatelet Therapy for Special Populations with Coronary Artery Disease”
HealthTrust presents…“Platelet-ing It Safe: Dual Antiplatelet Therapy for Special Populations with Coronary Artery Disease”
Please Note: Continuing education credit is only available to those attending the session live. CE credit is not available when accessing the program on demand.
In patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention, dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and a P2Y12 inhibitor is indicated to reduce cardiovascular risks and minimize stent thrombosis. Certain populations on DAPT may have increased bleeding or ischemic risks due to patient characteristics and comorbidities, such as genetic polymorphisms and concomitant anticoagulant use. The updated 2021 ACC/AHA/SCAI Guideline for Coronary Artery Revascularization recommends evaluating patient-specific factors to guide P2Y12 inhibitor selection and reduce bleeding risks without increasing ischemic events. This presentation will review current literature evaluating DAPT strategies and their clinical applications in special patient populations.
Learning Objectives for Pharmacists & Nurses | At the end of this session, participants should be able to:
- Recall advantages, potential risks, and characteristics of P2Y12 inhibitors.
- Recognize guideline recommendations for the efficacy and bleeding risks associated with P2Y12 inhibitors used in dual antiplatelet therapy for special populations
- Identify appropriate recommendations for P2Y12 inhibitor selection in an antiplatelet regimen based on patient specific recommendations
Learning Objectives for Pharmacy Techs | At the end of this session, participants should be able to:
- Recall available P2Y12 inhibitors utilized in dual antiplatelet therapy after percutaneous coronary intervention
- Identify safety considerations with P2Y12 inhibitors
- Recognize potential access barriers for patients receiving P2Y12 inhibitors
