Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) Flipchart

Venous Thromboembolism: Blood Clots in Veins and Lungs is a flipchart created by expert NPs to support clinicians in the education of patients with VTE and is available in English and Spanish. This tool serves as an engaging visual patient teaching aid while prompting the clinician to utilize the most current evidence-based strategies for patient-centered VTE management. The ultimate goal of this flipchart is to assist patients at risk for or with VTE to maximize their autonomy, avoid or control complications and enhance their quality of life.

AANP developed and produced this educational tool through support from Bristol-Myers Squibb and Pfizer Alliance.
