Go online to PeerView.com/URQ860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. In this activity, a vascular medicine expert discusses real-world evidence (RWE) for treating patients with or at risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE) with direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs). Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to: Explain the role of RWE and the impact it may have on improving care and outcomes in patients with VTE, Assess the quality and validity of the evidence collected as part of real-world studies comparing the DOACs with warfarin in patients with VTE (eg, efficacy, safety, cost-effectiveness, quality of life), Incorporate RWE into clinical decision-making for patients with VTE to design individualized treatment plans, especially for patients who may not be well represented in randomized clinical trials.
