Resources for Health Care Providers
Thank you for your interest in supporting the vascular health of adults with mobility disabilities, an underserved population with an elevated risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE).
As part of this project we worked with a comprehensive panel composed of members that include hematologists, researchers, communication specialists, people with disabilities, public health policy, and educators to develop a series of communication assets with information on VTE targeting patients with mobility impairments, their caregivers, and primary care providers.
We hope these materials increase awareness and knowledge of VTE risks, provide strategies to improve health provider encounters, and increase VTE diagnostic testing, preventive services, and appropriate treatment among people with mobility disabilities.
