Purpose:  This webinar will address the clinical challenges associated with the treatment of thrombosis in patients with advanced illness and review the risk of bleeding in the hospice and palliative care patient requiring anticoagulant therapy.

Objectives:  Participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss the current guidelines regarding management strategies for thrombosis and the clinical challenges in applying these guidelines to patients with advanced illness.
  2. Identify and review the risks, benefits and burdens of the current armamentarium of anticoagulants, including the addition of recent newer therapies, as it relates to the hospice and palliative care patient.
  3. Recognize the importance of ongoing assessment of thrombosis and bleeding risk as goals of care evolve throughout the patient’s disease trajectory.

Why Do I Need to Know This?  Palliative care and hospice providers commonly care for patients diagnosed with thromboembolic disease and questions frequently arise regarding anticoagulation management. Given the limited available evidence that exists regarding this controversial topic, this webinar will assist the palliative care and hospice clinician in weighing the risks, benefits and burdens of treatment options.

Target Audience:  palliative care specialists, pain specialists, primary care providers, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses with a specialty in palliative care/hospice, pharmacists, allied health professionals, fellows, residents, and medical students
