VTE Awareness

VTE In The Hospitalised Patient

A collaboration between Smart Health Solutions and Learn With Nurses, supported by Viatris

Every 37 seconds somebody in the western world dies from a venous thromboembolism (VTE).

Most of these are related to a hospital admission and all healthcare professionals have an essential role to play in preventing and managing VTE.


Have a look, listen or play with our VTE series including our on-demand webinar, podcasts or The Big Quiz, where we aim to improve knowledge and confidence in:

    • Prevention of VTE
    • Early identification of VTE
    • Diagnosing VTE
    • Management of VTE


Test your knowledge on VTE and see if you can beat the average score. You can see this week’s average score by visiting the LWN Big Quiz Page here

Take the quiz before and after watching the webinar to quantify your learning and aid your reflective notes for revalidation.

The quiz is anonymous but do tweet your results to @LWNurses using #LWNBigQuiz
