Évaluation d'un programme d'éducation destiné aux patients sous anticoagulants oraux en réadaptation cardiaque

Abstract : Objective: Assessing the therapeutic efficiency of an educational program intended for patients treated by oral anticoagulants in a cardiac rehabilitation center. Material and methods: Retrospective study including 118 patients (their average age being of 67 years), six months after receiving education concerning treatment by oral anticoagulant that inhibit the synthesis of clotting factors. Results: The vast majority of the patients (>90%) knew the exact name and mechanism of their oral anticoagulant, as well as the risks linked to the excess or lack of treatment, its specific uses, and the name of the laboratory test used to determine dosage. Close to 69% of patients knew their target INR. The average patient checked his INR every 21 days. 66% of patients had a well monitored INR. The mean deviation between the target and the actual INR was of 0.34 units. Conclusion: Patients have a good memory of the medical information received six months earlier in a cardiac rehabilitation center. Although the treatment is difficult to manage on a daily basis and requires regular monitoring of INR, patients have successfully adapted the demands of the treatment to their everyday lives.
