Pharmacists have a role in managing anticoagulant therapy in acutely ill hospitalized patients at risk for VTE, including protocol development and research, identifying unmet need and the value of prophylaxis in medically ill patients, and implementing practical DVT and PE prevention strategies. Consensus guidelines (e.g., COVID-19 ISTH 2020, COVID-19 ACC) have provided some guidance for COVID-19 infection and the connection to deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
