In a new clinical practice guideline published in Annals
of Internal Medicine, the American College of Physicians (ACP) recommends
that doctors assess the risk of thromboembolism and bleeding in patients
hospitalized for medical illnesses, including stroke, before initiating therapy
to prevent venous thromboembolism (VTE).
National Stroke Association’s mission is to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by developing compelling education and programs focused on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support for all impacted by stroke.
