This Venous Thromboembolism Prevention Clinical Care Standard was developed by the Commission in collaboration with consumers, clinicians, researchers and health service organisations. It complements existing efforts, including state and territory-based initiatives, which support the prevention of hospital-acquired venous thromboembolism (HA-VTE) in hospital and follow-up care in the community.

The standard was updated in January 2020. Amendments included a review and update of hyperlinks in the document, and guidance regarding dosing of medicines used to help prevent VTE in obese people (Quality statements 1 and 5).

An Implementation Guide for the Venous Thromboembolism Prevention Clinical Care Standard was released in December 2020.
