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.
