Interface Clinical Services have been shortlisted for the prestigious Anticoagulation Achievement Awards in partnership with Sentinel Healthcare.
The awards, first launched in 2017, are made to teams and individuals across secondary, primary and community services who can demonstrate innovation and excellence in delivering anticoagulation services, resources or individual leadership. Finalists were selected from entries from across the UK.
Hosted by Lyn Brown MP, Chair of the All Party Group for Thrombosis, and supporting the global, World Thrombosis Day, the award ceremony will be held in the Houses of Commons on 10th October 2018 when the winners will be announced.
Interface and Sentinel Healthcare were shortlisted for the Safe and Effective Management of Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation project. The project was designed to improve all aspects of patient care through the correct identification and diagnosis of AF to ensuring patients with AF are optimally anticoagulated.
Organisers of the awards, representing leading charities Thrombosis UK, Anticoagulation UK, AF Association and Arrhythmia Alliance and national training establishments, Anticoagulation in Practice, and National Centre for Anticoagulation Training commented:
“1 in 4 people worldwide die of conditions caused by blood clots, also known by the medical term “thrombosis”– the underlying cause of the world’s top three cardiovascular killers: heart attack, stroke and venous thromboembolism (VTE).
“There is overwhelming clinical evidence, embedded in approved national guidelines, to support prevention, protection and improved patient outcomes and experience.
“We hope these awards will not only recognise the outstanding work of the medical centres, teams and individuals involved, but also act as a learning resource for others.”
