Learning from venous thromboembolism (VTE) claims in primary care – webinar

Webinar resource

On Nov 7 2023, NHS Resolution’s Safety and Learning team, hosted a virtual forum on learning from venous thromboembolism (VTE) claims in primary care.

The purpose was to raise awareness of the cost and scale of harm, discuss the challenges and recommendations around recognition and treatment of VTE in general practice. We heard from a range of experts in the field with experience in developing and spreading best practice.

The format was interactive, with delegate questions and panel discussion.

The NHS Resolution and Thrombosis UK VTE webinar was a fantastic opportunity for a diverse audience of clinicians from general practice, community, independent and secondary care to learn and share about Venous thrombosis from our expert speakers. The key takeaway was ‘Think Thrombosis!” and ‘safety netting is vital’.
