This activity is intended for hematologists/oncologists, medical oncologists, nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs), oncology pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals who are involved in the prevention and treatment of VTE in patients with cancer.

While there may be subtle differences among all the new guidelines for CAT, it is important to understand that these revisions contain substantive changes from preceding versions. The key challenge, however, is that guidelines—even older ones—are not being followed. For example, one missed opportunity for optimizing care is that up to half of patients who should be receiving prophylaxis for VTE are not receiving it, nor are they receiving adequate information from their clinicians, nor are they being involved in decision making with regard to their care, contributing to poor adherence and poor outcomes. Clinicians can benefit substantially from continued education about the importance of CAT prophylaxis, treatment, and available resources to assist with the appropriate care of patients with cancer.

This activity is jointly provided by The France Foundation, The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis, and the International Initiative on Thrombosis and Cancer.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of The France Foundation (TFF), The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH), and the International Initiative on Thrombosis and Cancer (ITAC). TFF is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

TFF designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 0.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
An application has been made to the UEMS EACCME for CME accreditation of this event.

Nurses certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) may utilize activities that are certified by ACCME-accredited providers toward their requirement for certification renewal by the ANCC. A certificate of attendance will be provided by TFF, an ACCME accredited provider.

In accordance with the ACCME Standards for Commercial Support, TFF, ISTH, and ITAC require that individuals in a position to control the content of an educational activity disclose all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest.
