Seeking Patients Taking Warfarin (Coumadin) for a Brief Survey

Henry I. Bussey, Pharm.D.

Are you taking warfarin, have you ever taken warfarin, or have you been the care giver of someone taking warfarin?
Can you spare 5 minutes to provide information about your warfarin experience?
Joshua Wright, a current warfarin user, has developed a survey to find out the needs of the warfarin community based on individual experiences. From the survey, Joshua hopes to create a tool that will help patients better manage their daily needs and the challenges associated with warfarin use. The survey takes about 5 minutes and will ask about your experiences as a current or past warfarin user, or as a care giver of someone taking warfarin.
You can take the survey at HealthyINR.com or https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ClotCare
Please address any questions to Joshua Wright at HealthyINR@gmail.com.
Joshua’s Story: Joshua has been taking warfarin since July 2016. As a 26 year old law student, he is hoping to find some normalcy with this life-long, but life-saving, medication. Since starting the medication, he has noticed many challenges faced by warfarin users, especially for individuals with other ailments. His irregular dosing schedule was so hard to manage that he changed it to an easier-to-manage daily dosage without his doctor’s approval — He believes that no warfarin user should feel the need to do that. He has also struggled with managing his diet, which is supposed to be low in sodium and consistent in vitamin K. His hope is that his survey can find a solution to the many problems that exist for more people than just himself and build a strong community of support.
