Nursing driven protocol for argatroban (HIT)

Hi All,

Our organization is reviewing the possibility of creating nursing driven protocol for management of argatroban (dose titration based on aPTT) for heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT).

Please share your experience. Is it done at your institution? If yes, what obstacles have you encountered in implementing the nursing driven protocol.

I appreciate your feedback,

Thank you,

Agnieszka Pasternak
