    Venous thromboembolism comprises both deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) and is one of the most common and preventable complications of hospitalization.1 Many risk factors for developing VTE have been identified (see Table 1), but the most common risk factor in hospitalized patients is reduced mobility. Almost every hospitalized patient has at least one of these risk factors for VTE and most have multiple risk factors. The VTE Getting Started Kit provides you with evidence-based resources to assist you in increasing the use of appropriate thromboprophylaxis in acute care hospitalized patients and aligns with Accreditation Canada's Required Organizational Practices on VTE prevention. This free resource contains clinical information, information on the science of improvement, and everything you need to know to optimize the appropriate use of thromboprophylaxis.
