In Australia, Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) events kill more people than breast cancer, road traffic accidents and HIV / AIDS combined. VTE is the most common cause of preventable deaths in hospitalised patients.

Would you know how to recognise risk factors in your patients?

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the incidence and prevalence of VTE in the population
  • Factors that increase susceptibility to VTE including the effect of comorbidities and identify patients at risk
  • Exploring the increased risk in surgical populations
  • Understanding pharmacological and mechanical methods to prevent VTE
  • Exploring available treatment methods and monitoring for  patients who develop a VTE event
