Announcing Survey on Patient Safety in Orthopedics Help better understand practical solutions to prevent venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients undergoing hip and knee replacement

To better understand and develop practical solutions to prevent venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients undergoing hip and knee replacement, PPAHS asks for you to complete this survey on patient safety in orthopedics.

This survey has been sent to orthopedic surgeons and clinicians across the US.

The Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety has had a long interest in preventing venous thromboembolism, and has brought together panels of health experts to develop the OB VTE Safety Recommendations and the Stroke VTE Safety Recommendations (both of which are free resources on the PPAHS website).

VTE is the third-most prevalent factor accounting for readmission 30 days after surgery.

By completing this survey, you may elect to be entered into a lottery draw for a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift certificate and to receive a copy of the survey report.

The winner of the lottery draw will be chosen randomly from those who complete the survey and the contact information form after the survey.

Please complete this survey by 5pmET on Friday, November 4, 2016.
