Venous Thromboembolism: Cases for Clinical Decision-Making

Venous Thromboembolism: Cases for Clinical Decision-Making

Four cases on the most important considerations for managing VTE are discussed in this course – switching anticoagulants, treating patients with obesity, treating cancer-associated VTE, and managing out of range INRs. Connect your learning to practice with these quick 15-minute cases for one hour of CE.

Upon successful completion of this application-based CPE course, pharmacists should be able to:
1. Recommend a therapeutic transition between warfarin and a direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC).
2. Recommend a treatment regimen for venous thromboembolism (VTE) in obesity based on the International
Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis 2021 guidelines.
3. Apply current guidelines on prophylaxis and treatment of VTE in patients with cancer to a patient case.
4. Recommend an appropriate adjustment to a warfarin regimen in a patient with an out-of-range INR.
