Co-sponsored by the Duke University School of Medicine and Med-IQ.


Overview: In January 2010, the Duke University School of Medicine and Med-IQ convened a roundtable of medical experts in venous thromboembolism (VTE) to discuss the recognition and prevention of this condition within the federal healthcare system. These experts reviewed and compared the challenges of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism risk assessment and thromboprophylaxis in the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) and active-duty military branches with challenges encountered in general clinical practice. This discussion is particularly timely, given the recent focus on VTE as a prominent public health problem by a number of government bodies and national organizations, including the VA, the United States Surgeon General, and the National Quality Forum. This article focuses on the prevention of VTE in the federal healthcare system and includes key excerpts from the roundtable discussion.
