Research and Clinical Practice
Dr. Nagge’s primary research interests are driven by questions routinely encountered in his clinical practice that lack solutions supported by a solid evidence base. Examples of this include the development of strategies to optimize the management of anticoagulation therapy, and evaluating the effectiveness and safety of various pharmacological alternatives for cardiovascular risk reduction.
Dr. Nagge also practices as a clinical consultant at the Centre for Family Medicine Academic Family Health team in Kitchener.
His clinical interests include anticoagulation, cardiovascular therapeutics, evidence-informed practice, and shared decision-making. He practices as a clinical consultant at the Centre for Family Medicine Academic Family Health team in Kitchener, where he developed several innovative clinical services including a point-of-care anticoagulation clinic, arterial and venous thrombosis clinics, and a cardiovascular risk reduction clinic. He has supervised hundreds of undergraduate and post-graduate Pharmacy and Medical learners in these clinics, and trained more than 200 practicing pharmacists, nurses and nurse practitioners in MOAT, a blended-learning, continuing education course that teaches clinicians how to manage oral anticoagulant therapy in primary care settings.
