The quality statements for the Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) Prevention Clinical Care Standard were developed in collaboration with the Venous Thromboembolism Prevention Clinical Care Standard Topic Working Group and are based on best available evidence.

Literature searches are conducted by staff of the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission) at different stages of the development of a clinical care standard. The initial search for this clinical care standard took place in August 2016. A draft evidence summary was prepared, which was reviewed for completeness by the VTE Clinical Care Standard Topic Working Group. Subsequent searches were conducted as the clinical care standard was developed.

A summary of evidence sources for each draft quality statement is in this Evidence Sources document.

Pages 5 – 9 identify a high-level summary of all sources used across quality statements. Pages 10 – 25 provide more granular information for each quality statement, including page references for sources.

The end-of-life care audit tool was developed to give hospitals the ability to compile data associated with the delivery of end-of-life care in a manageable and uniform way. Having the capacity to collect and analyse this data allows hospitals to review how care is being delivered and identify opportunities for better alignment with the Consensus Statement, and improvement of end-of-life care in general.
