The PERT Consortium was formed to promote best practices in Pulmonary Embolism (PE) care. By focusing solely on the entirety of PE – its etiology, pathophysiology, prevention, management approach, outcomes of specific treatments, and follow-up pathways – it is the intention of the Consortium to increase awareness of treatment options available to patients with PE, to reduce its incidence worldwide, to improve health outcomes, and to positively influence the impact of this terrible disease.

This annual 2 day, AMA PRA/ANCC‐accredited conference entitled, ”Pulmonary Embolism: What is Known, and What We Need to Know: A State of the Art and Scientific Update”, is designed for practicing clinicians who regularly care for patients with acute and chronic pulmonary embolism (PE), as well as those who are interested in studying the pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, prevention, medical and interventional management, novel treatment paradigms, and outcomes of pulmonary embolism (PE).

For the first time, in 2020 this annual event will be conducted virtually spanning two days. The meeting agenda has been expanded to include topics and presentations surrounding COVID-19 and the unique association of this novel virus with Venous Thromboembolic Diease (VTE), and specifically its impact on incidence and management of Pulmonary Embolism.
