World Thrombosis Day Today, Friday, October 13: Engage Your Patients, Colleagues or Students
WTD 2017 is focused on venous thromboembolism (VTE ) and hospitalization as a leading risk factor for VTE. VTE can be prevented, yet patients at high risk for developing the condition often don’t receive life-saving prevention. Engage with your patients, colleagues and/or students today, and education your network about VTE risk factors, sign and symptoms. Additionally, as a healthcare professional, you can use WTD as an opportunity to discuss, update or establish your organization’s VTE policy.
