Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) Awareness Campaign

VTE logo

Venous Thromboembolism is a preventable disease that affects millions of people worldwide. Certain risk factors – including obesity, age and surgery type – increase a patient's risk for developing a deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism.

This campaign is designed to promote VTE awareness and provide ASPS Members with resources to prevent VTE and improve patient safety.
