Abstract

Established OAC users reported being satisfied and perceived their OAC as effective with low bleeding risk. Users who switched from warfarin to a NOAC reported increased satisfaction related to the lack of clotting-time testing and no dietary restrictions. All OAC users reported dissatisfaction related to worry about bleeding risk.
