Overview

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 two day 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 pulmonary embolism (PE), as well as those who are interested in studying the pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, medical and interventional management, novel treatment paradigms, and outcomes of PE.

Many would say that, when it comes to PE, we have an international crisis, given the prevalence of this disease, its enormous impact, and the relative lack of progress in its management. In fact, in 2008, the Surgeon General issued a “Call to Action” to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of PE. Therefore, the purpose of this symposium is to improve the understanding of the pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of PE by educating our medical colleagues through a series of lectures and interactive discussions with thought leaders in the field.
