Welcome to issue 15 of PERTinent Updates, featuring a select group of articles for your review. We aim to inform and update our members with the most recent major developments in the fields of PERT/VTE so that we in the PERT Consortium can continue to be at the leading edge of improving care for this vulnerable and overlooked group of patients.

In addition, we are gearing for a new webinar series beginning on October 10th at 6 PM that you won’t want to miss. We will be sending out a second wave of invitations towards the end of this week so keep an eye on your inbox.
