Venous Thromboembolism Prophylaxis in Hospitalized Adult Patients: A Multidisciplinary Approach

Venous Thromboembolism Prophylaxis in Hospitalized Adult Patients: A Multidisciplinary Approach

In order to request this CME/CE activity for your center, please contact Samantha Zelasko at or call (609)325-4668.

May 2018 – May 2019


This activity focuses on multidisciplinary approaches for the prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in hospitalized adult patients. VTE, which can take the form of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and/or pulmonary embolism (PE), affects approximately 900,000 Americans each year and leads to death in approximately 100,000 Americans annually. In addition to the morbidity and mortality, VTE is associated with substantial health care costs. Under-prescribing for VTE prophylaxis may exacerbate the issue. Furthermore, the perioperative DVT/PE rate has been used since 2015 for Medicare’s Hospital Value-Based Purchasing to link quality to payments. Keeping health care providers apprised of current guidelines and therapies for VTE prophylaxis can improve patient outcomes. With an overview of evidence-based guidelines, anticoagulant therapy options, and risk-assessment models, this activity will help clinicians address VTE prophylaxis in their patient populations.

Target Audience: This program is directed toward cardiologists, hematologists, cardiologists, hospitalists, residents, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and other hospital-based providers who care for patients with VTE.

Educational Objectives

  • Explain the importance of appropriate VTE prophylaxis in hospitalized patients in relation to the risk of VTE associated with varying patient groups
  • Demonstrate appropriate, guideline-based decisions on selection of patients requiring VTE prophylaxis and administration of mechanical and pharmaceutical VTE prophylactics
  • Discuss new clinical trial data on pharmacologic therapies for VTE prophylaxis, including recently approved agents, reversal agents, and real-world comparisons
  • Apply collaborative, multidisciplinary care strategies for improving VTE prophylaxis protocols
