Recorded 2013 NCCN Nursing Program Webinar: Recent Advances in Risk Assessment for VTE and Thromboprophylaxis
The 2013 Nursing Program: Advancing Oncology Nursing™ webinar series provides the oncology nurse with comprehensive and clinically relevant information regarding the management of patients with cancer. This program focuses on hereditary colorectal cancer, management of chemosensory dysfunction, management of adverse events in metastatic prostate cancer and metastatic breast cancer, risk assessment for VTE and thromboprophylaxis, and prevention and treatment of cancer-related infections. Oncology nurses will leave this program with information to provide the best clinical care and patient education to further improve their patients' quality of life.
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of oncology nurses who manage patients with cancer.
Following this activity, participants should be able to do the following:
- Discuss factors that contribute to the risk of VTE and identify high-risk patients who may benefit most from thromboprophylaxis
- Summarize the current standard of care for thromboprophylaxis in patients with cancer
- Provide an example of a course of treatment for a patient receiving thromboprophylaxis
