Activity Overview 

This webinar is focused on discussing new literature on the use of direct-acting oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in the pediatric population. Recent Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approvals of both agents and dosage forms have created questions about which agents are optimal for use in which patient populations. This webinar will present the most up-to-date information and include clinical pearls and case-based application to engage attendees and provide tangibile clinical takeaways for practical use of these agents. 


The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.

This webinar was designed to meet the education needs of healthcare providers regarding use of DOACs in pediatric patients. 

After completing this activity, the learner should be able to… 

  1. Identify an appropriate DOAC and dosage form based on patient characteristics. 

  1. Discuss the literature for use of DOACs in pediatric patients. 

  1. List counseling points and practical tips for use of DOACs in pediatric patients.
