All participants receive educational materials about venous disease, as well as a report card to bring to their primary care provider.
The VTE risk assessment screening programs isa simple and easy questionnaire that allows health care providers to interpret your risk for a Deep vein Thrombosis (DVT). All participants receive educational materials about VTE as well as a report card intended to be shared with their primary care provider.
