Venous Thromboembolism Prevention Clinical Care Standard

CPD Hours: 1.5
Current as at 05 October 2021
This Venous Thromboembolism Prevention Clinical Care Standard was developed by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (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.

Course Content

“Clinical care standards aim to support the delivery of appropriate evidence-based clinical care and promote shared decision making between patients, carers and clinicians.

A clinical care standard contains a small number of quality statements that describe the clinical care a patient should be offered for a specific clinical condition. Many of the quality statements are linked to indicators that can be used by health service organisations to monitor how well they are implementing the care recommended in the clinical care standard.

A clinical care standard differs from and is therefore not intended to be, a clinical practice guideline. Rather than describing all the components of care recommended for managing a clinical condition, a clinical care standard addresses priority areas of the patient pathway where the need for quality improvement is greatest.
