TPTA Journal Club: Venous Thromboembolism & Physical Therapy - A Review of the Current Clinical Practice Guideline

This webinar will provide a review of the Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) for physical therapist management of individuals at risk for or diagnosed with venous thromboembolism (VTE), while also promoting the importance of the physical therapist's role in patient mobility.    


  • Highlight the prevalence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) with guidelines for, and emphasis on, the importance of the physical therapist's role in patient mobility across all treatment settings.  

  • Review the Key Action Statements within the CPG that guide the physical therapist in the prevention of, screening for, and treatment of patients at risk for or diagnosed with lower extremity deep vein thrombosis (LE DVT) to allow for consistent clinical decision making, as well as consistent communication with the entire medical team. 

  • Provide case studies for application of the CPG for individuals at risk for VTE.
