Our Team

The Thrombosis Program takes a team approach to patient care. Our team includes hematologists, nurses, receptionists and research associates.

Our hematologists are all members of the Division of Hematology, in the Department of Medicine at the University of British Columbia. We are active in clinical practice, medical education and research.

Our incredible support staff ensures that our patients receive the best care possible. The nurses in the Thrombosis Program work closely with our patients to deliver comprehensive care and to improve the quality and safety of all patients receiving anticoagulation.

Our nursing staff performs a wide range of important tasks which include: triaging referrals to the Thrombosis Clinic; providing anticoagulation counseling to patients and their family members; teaching self-injection techniques; helping patients to manage warfarin dosing and the use of a point-of-care device; offering post-operative follow-up; and providing telephone advice about commonly asked questions regarding anticoagulant therapy.

Our nurses and research staff also ensure patients are given opportunities to take part in cutting-edge clinical research in thrombosis. To make all of this possible, our reception coordinates clinical appointments and diagnostic testing, and welcomes our patients with a smile.

Finally, we believe patients and their families are an important part of the team, and their contribution to the care plan is extremely important.
