Mary Bauman "EmPoWAR : Building warfarin self-management programs in children"

Warfarin self-management is the next step in warfarin management where a patient tests their INR at home using a point of care INR meter and effectively learns to manage their own warfarin dose. Warfarin self-management empowers patients to safely and effectively  manage their health while improving warfarin health related quality of life. 

Sophie Jones "Integration of an electronic medical record with warfarin self-management"

This presentation will  describe how warfarin self-management can be implemented using an electronic medical record to facilitate communication of INR results, warfarin dosing and changes in the patients' health status from the family to the clinical team.


Moderator:Fiona Newall





Mary Bauman

Mary Bauman has been a registered nurse for almost 40 years. She completed an undergraduate degree with co-majors in social work and psychology, then her Masters in Nursing and Nurse Practitioner at the University of Alberta in 2006.  Her current practice is within the KIDCLOT inpatient program as well as overseeing the outpatient anticoagulation program.

Her career in pediatric thrombosis began alongside Drs Maureen Andrews and Patricia Massicotte in 1999 at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto before being recruited to Stollery Children’s Hospital, at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton.

In addition to clinical responsibilities she is an active researcher, with over 70 publications. Her primary research focus is on strategies to improve anticoagulant management including warfarin therapy.

At the present time the KIDCLOT program hosts the largest Point of care INR monitoring program in North America, in addition to a large inpatient consult service. She has had the opportunity to support many pediatric entities across Canada and the US, helping them to establish their own POC INR programs.  

In addition, She is a member of the local (Health Research Ethics Board),the national (Canadian Pediatric Thrombosis and Hemostasis Network, the operations group of the Western Canadian Children’s Heart Network, previous chair of the  Patient & Family Education committee of Thrombosis Canada in addition to chair of the Registration Committee for the College or Registered Nurses of Alberta.  


Sophie Jones

Sophie Jones is an Anticoagulation Clinical Nurse Consultant at The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne. Prior to joining the Clinical Haematology department in 2009, Sophie was a clinical nurse specialist on the cardiac and renal unit at RCH. Sophie completed her Masters of Philosophy in 2011. Her thesis examined quality of life for children requiring warfarin therapy before and after the commencement of home INR testing. Sophie completed her PhD at the University of Melbourne in 2017. Her PhD study recruited a cohort of children in paediatric intensive care to determine the incidence of asymptomatic central venous line-related thrombosis in. The cohort was followed up two years later to identify the resultant prevalence of post-thrombotic syndrome. Sophie is involved in the education and mentorship of nurses in research and evidence-based nursing at the Royal Children’s Hospital through her clinical role and through The University of Melbourne as a casual lecturer and tutor. Sophie has conducted and published nurse-led research in the areas of paediatric cardiology and haematology.

Fiona Newall

Fiona commenced working in the field of paediatric thrombosis and haemostasis in 1999, after having consolidated her paediatric nursing practice in the areas of oncology and intensive care. Fiona completed her Master of Nursing (Research, 2005) and PhD (2009) at The University of Melbourne. Fiona’s Masters Thesis investigated the outcomes of warfarin in children and explored strategies to optimise the management of this medication in children. Her PhD thesis explored the pharmacokinetics and monitoring of unfractionated heparin in children. The findings of both research degrees have been translated back into practice to improve the quality of care patients requiring anticoagulant therapy receive.

In June 2011, Fiona was appointed to the position of Professor/Director of Nursing Research at the Royal Children’s Hospital. In this role, Fiona supports the nursing workforce to engage in evidence-based practice and promotes their involvement in research activities that have the potential to improve patient care and clinical outcomes. In addition to her honorary appointments with The University of Melbourne and the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, Fiona continues to work one day a week in her role of Anticoagulation Nurse Consultant at RCH. This ongoing clinical appointment provides a strong foundation upon which Fiona can promote the positive integration of clinical practice and research on the RCH campus.
