The National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health has invited submissions of study ideas. I submitted a suggestion that warfarin managed with INR self testing and online monitoring and management should be compared with one of the new oral anticoagulants in patients with atrial fibrillation. Visitors to the NHLBI at http://nhlbistrategicvisioning.ideascale.com/ can view the submissions. If you click on “Browse Submissions” that will take you to a page where you can enter “warfarin” to search the submissions and that will bring up my submission and one other. Please take a look at what I submitted and see if you would like to vote for the submission and/or add a comment. Thank you.
