This is an interactive training exercise which uses a clinical avatar (virtual patient). It helps pharmacists to improve their knowledge on anticoagulation and to practice how to counsel a newly diagnosed atrial fibrillation (AF) patient.

You will meet Henry Gentle (67 years, Type 2 Diabetes, AF), a regular patient of yours.

Henry comes to your pharmacy to collect his newly prescribed anticoagulant rivaroxaban. You will need to correctly dispense and counsel him to ensure responsible use of his medication.

To communicate with Henry, you have to pick one of the given answers. At the end of the exercise, Henry will provide feedback on your counselling skills.
