    Critical Actions

    • Risks and benefits of anticoagulation should be carefully considered in ALL patients prior to initiating therapy.
    • Other risk stratification scores such as HAS-BLED or ATRIA should also be taken into consideration prior to starting anticoagulation.
    • Alternative options should often be considered in patients with high-risk of major bleeding events in need of anticoagulation.
