Objective: Warfarin use is difficult due to the necessity for regular international normalized ratio (INR) monitoring and drug-drug interaction. However, it is still the most widely preferred oral anticoagulant. This study aimed to assess the efficacy and reliability of warfarin use by patients attending outpatient clinics (OC) or who received home health services (HHS).
