New detailed consensus guidance from 58 leading experts on treating Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) appears in this month’s Journal of Thrombosis and Thrombolysis and is being made available free, online as open source material.
The Anticoagulation Forum initiated this comprehensive guidance project to inform a wide range of healthcare providers about treatments for this life threatening condition and provide easily accessible information about therapies that can be readily put into practice. As the incidence of VTE is expected to double in the next forty years, it is likely that a broad range of clinicians will need to treat patients with VTE.
The Journal’s entire January issue is dedicated to the topic of managing patient care for VTE with traditional therapies as well as with direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs). The published papers incorporate both evidence-based data and consensus opinion to provide practical guidance on a range of real world clinical situations.
