Nice | Venous thromboembolism (DVT) investigation and management

3rd August 2012 by Louise Hudman

This guideline is a good summary of the management of the investigation and management of venous thromboembolism . Different areas locally vary a lot in how they manage patients (eg anticoagulation clinics vs GP led services), so you may think most of this is done in the clinics – but if you work in Southampton – it may be you!

Remember that SIGN released some excellent guidance last year which covers VTE in special groups – eg pregnant women / flying etc.

The big changes here are in clarifying who needs what investigations for cancer and thrombophilia after a VTE. The rest is probably familiar to everyone.

"I have been a member of the NASGP for about 18 months and find the support and advice invaluable.

It was especially helpful when I started locum work. I think I must have spent hours on the website devouring every single article as I was keen to learn all I could before I went solo. "
