  • Overview

    Venous thromboembolism (VTE) morbidity, mortality, and impact on the overall quality of life start with timely diagnosis, appropriate initial treatment, and management. Prevention occurs at a primary and secondary level. This program focuses on all the components to manage VTEs at all of these levels to help clinicians effectively manage their patients and reduce preventable harm and corresponding healthcare costs. This program also highlights aspects of the guidelines that can be used daily to help with the management of VTE in daily practice.

    • Illustrate how to implement evidence-based medicine, clinical guideline statements, and real-world clinical data in clinical practice to improve outcomes for primary prevention of VTE, initial treatment and management of VTE, and the secondary prevention of recurrent VTE
