This symposium is designed to bring together practitioners to discuss, share and extend understanding and learning in the management of thrombosis and thromboprophylaxis in pregnancy and the puerperium. Accurate diagnosis can result in substantial benefits. However, diagnosis and management of pregnant and post-partum females can be very difficult with many issues arising including:
- Low awareness
- Poor understanding
- Inadequate understanding of effective and timely communication
- Knowledge and confidence to balance risk against potential catastrophic, life changing VTE events.
Through presentation, workshops and discussion, the day will look at guidelines, complexities, challenges and difficult case studies in order to extend understanding and learning in the management of thrombosis and thromboprophylaxis in pregnancy and the puerperium.
The course will take place on the 12 October 2017 at 10:00 – 16:30.
The agenda has been developed through collaboration with individuals representing haematology, midwifery, patients and pharmacy.

- Review of guideline and supporting evidence
