Thank you for your participation in this physician survey which addresses the practice patterns related to oral anticoagulation in chronic kidney disease and dialysis patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. We would like to elicit the values of clinicians regarding stroke and bleeding risks and their willingness to allow their patients with kidney disease to participate in randomized controlled trials for left atrial appendage occlusion devices or apixaban. We estimate that it will take 15 minutes to complete the survey. We appreciate your time and involvement in this study.

Nov  2016 Participate in the CHUM Research Centre National Survey Today!


 The CHUM Research Centre is soliciting your participation in a national survey of physician practices regarding left ventricular apical dysfunction following anterior STEMI.
As you know, apical dysfunction in this setting has been associated with an early LV thrombus formation and stroke risk in the pre-PCI era. However, controversy exists as to whether the addition of anticoagulation on top of dual anti-platelet therapy should still be advocated in 2016.
Our short adaptive survey involves a clinical vignette and a maximum of 7 questions that should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
(Note: If completing the survey on a handheld device, the survey display is optimized for landscape mode.)
We thank you in advance for your time and valuable contribution to this study.

Nov 17, 2016 DOAC Reversal Survey - Ottawa Blood Disease Centre

You are being asked to participate in a research survey that we have developed in collaboration with Dr. Paul Dorian, Department Division Director of Cardiology at the University of Toronto. Physician members from a variety of associations in Canada, the United States and Europe will be asked to participate.

Please see below for a link to the survey, as well as additional information.

The questions from this survey pertain to the management of bleeding complications in the setting of Direct Oral Anticoagulant (DOAC) use.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete, and will include questions regarding demographic information, knowledge of DOAC pharmacokinetics and laboratory assessment of DOAC anticoagulation status, knowledge surrounding the assessment and management of DOAC-associated life-threatening bleeding, as well as opinions surrounding DOAC-associated life-threatening bleeding.

We appreciate your time and assistance.

We are conducting a "Mentorship Through Social Media" survey to assess the role of social media / networking and mentorship.

All results will remain anonymous and deidentified with no potential for linkage to any identifying information. The survey should take about 3 minutes to complete.

Thank you so much for your time in advance and commitment towards improving mentorship for the future generation.
