COVID-19patients are at increased risk for thrombotic complications – this has led to an intense debate surrounding their anticoagulation management.

In the absence of data from randomized controlled clinical trials, experts have come together and a number of consensus guidelines and recommendations have been published to facilitate clinical decision making on this issue.

However substantive differences exist between these guidelines which can be difficult for clinicians.

This program will focus on VTE in COVID-19 patients. We will present cases that illustrate the importance of coordinated management of these patients, including need for appropriate thromboprophylaxis.
