This webinar will provide an overview of the management of the direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in primary and secondary care, with case studies to assist clinical practice covering common scenarios, management of minor bleeding events, improving the safety of DOACs and minimising medication errors with practical advice.

After this webinar, participants should be able to:
- Discuss DOACs and uncover the myths associated with them
