VTE Measures and Prevention

Date: Thursday, May 8, 2014

Time: 2:00 PM ET

This is the third webinar in the Essential Hospitals Engagement Network’s patient harm series.

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) and pulmonary embolism (PE), together, are cited as the fourth most frequent cause of serious patient harm and account for one out of every eight preventable deaths.

Experts from two essential hospitals, University of California-Davis and University of Washington Harborview Medical Center, discussed:

  • their latest VTE research
  • AHRQ PSI-12 post-operative VTE measures
  • VTE risk factors and preventive interventions for knee arthroplasty
  • Innovative quality improvement approaches that have reduced post-operative DVT/PE by 21.7 percent
