dc.description.abstract Warfarin therapy is underused in the target at-risk elderly population. Clinicians perceive that older patients are reluctant to use this therapy, however the perspective of patients or their carers has yet to be explored. Objective: To explore in-depth the perspectives of elderly patients and/or their carers regarding the use of warfarin therapy. Method: A qualitative study, using semi-structured group interviews was undertaken. The audio-taped discussions were transcribed verbatim, then thematically analysed to identify emergent themes. Group discussions were conducted at a major Sydney teaching hospital, over a 2-month period. Individuals aged 65 years or older (and/or their carers) who were using long-term ( 6 months) warfarin therapy were recruited by voluntary response to study flyers. en_US
