ASH Webinar on COVID-19 and Thrombosis
New evidence is emerging daily that COVID-19 isn’t just a respiratory disease; it is also a blood disease. Data are emerging that COVID-19 infection can result in coagulopathy in severely ill patients, and there are reports of an increased risk of clinical and subclinical thrombosis in the setting of severe COVID-19 disease with multiple reports citing an increased incidence of thrombosis, especially venous thromboembolism.
The rapid onslaught of cases, the severity of critical illness and complications, and the desire to do something have resulted in a significant debate about the appropriate anticoagulant approach to preventing both macrovascular and microvascular thrombosis at a time when no data are available to inform decisions and guide clinical care.

ASH designates this live educational activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 1 Medical Knowledge MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
Only physicians are eligible to be awarded AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. The American Medical Association (AMA) defines physicians as those individuals who have obtained an MD, DO or equivalent medical degree from another country.
Physicians who participate in this CME activity but are not licensed in the U.S. are also eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Non-physicians and other health-care professionals attending the meeting can receive a Certificate of Attendance as well as a summary report of CME-certified sessions attended.
To claim CME and ABIM MOC points, or print a Certificate of Attendance, participants must complete the online program evaluation surveys through ASH Academy. The evaluations will be available at the end of the webinar.
