Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) prevention

Programme overview

The Feasibility Study of a National Clinical Audit for Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) Prevention is to test both the feasibility and the likely impact, of an NCA by identifying:

  • what would be its specific improvement aims;
  • the patient group(s) and services that it should include;
  •  the quality indicators and outcome measures that would best support the improvement aims;
  • the methodology that would deliver its required outcomes most efficiently and effectively in terms of local burden and central costs; and
  • the roles, groups and/ or professions who would need to be influenced to realise and drive any required change locally and their needs in terms of reporting and other outputs
