Community Practice Connections™: Optimizing Outcomes in VTE Management: Collaborating Across the Continuum

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Target Audience
This educational program is directed toward cardiologists and cardiology subspecialists. Nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other health care professionals involved in the treatment and management of patients with VTE are also invited to participate.

Program Overview
This online educational activity features 2 physicians from different disciplines, both renowned experts in the management of venous thromboembolism (VTE). They discuss keys to prompt recognition and accurate diagnosis of VTE, with the goal of establishing early therapeutic intervention and prevention of recurrence. It is important for community physicians to recognize VTE in its early stages and to effectively employ anticoagulant therapies to prevent serious complications. Establishment of prophylactic care plans is essential for preventing recurrent VTE episodes.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

Demonstrate appropriate, guideline-based decision-making related to the selection, initiation, and duration of pharmacotherapy for patients with VTE
Analyze the clinical efficacy and safety findings that support pharmacotherapy recommendations in VTE treatment guidelines
Apply best practices for transitions of care (ToC) across health care settings for patients with DVT, incorporating interdisciplinary collaboration and use of tools and resources
Discuss key educational and counseling messages with patients and their caregivers to optimize treatment adherence and patient safety
