 Study Group Activities
Evidence-based Clinical Practice Guidelines & Summaries

Guideline Development Project : MASCC/ISOO Guidelines for Preventing Cancer-Associated Thrombosis (CAT)
The Study Group is in the process of developing clinical practice guidelines for the prevention of cancer-associated thrombosis. The goals of the project are to review the recent literature, make recommendations for the prevention of venous thrombosis, and develop educational tools about cancer-associated thrombosis. Reviewers are needed to assist with literature review and to provide input as we work toward completing the guidelines. This is a great opportunity to get involved with the work of the Study Group.
