The EHA-SWG Scientific Meeting on Systemic Risk of Thrombosis or Bleeding is a three-day meeting dedicated to physicians who take care of patients with thrombotic or hemorrhagic risk. This meeting will teach participants how to recognize these patients, update them on treatments available for reducing these risks, and demonstrate how to weigh the benefits and risk of anti-hemorrhagic and anti-thrombotic therapies.

Below you can find key information and links to important details regarding registration and accommodation. There is also a wide array of sponsorship opportunities available for pharmaceutical companies.

This meeting will cover the following topics:

  • Venous thromboembolism
  • Biological markers to assess the thrombotic risk
  • Scoring for bleeding risk
  • Platelet threshold for anticoagulant treatments
