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.

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.
