Objectives: At the completion of this activity, the participant should be able to:
• Decide which patient with DVT is suitable for pharmaco-mechanical thrombectomy.
• Weigh the pros and cons of the different anticoagulants before initiating anticoagulation in the patient with DVT or PE.
• Use the appropriate anticoagulant in special patient populations with DVT or PE, such as the patient who is obese, underwent bariatric surgery, is elderly, has cancer or renal failure.
• Direct a patient who cannot afford the copay for one of the new oral anticoagulants to the appropriate resources.
• Advise a patient interested in taking testosterone on the thrombotic risk.
• Make decisions on which patient to test for thrombophilia, which tests to obtain, and correctly interpret the test results.
Professional Practice Gap to be filled: Lack of most recent knowledge for anticoagulant therapy
