Venous thromboembolism (VTE) investigation and management – new NICE advice

This is an updated guideline from NICE on the investigation and management of venous thromboembolism (VTE). It was published in Mar 20.

There is also a very good visual summary, which outlines investigations and gives a superb summary on treatment options.

There are quite a few changes in this guideline and I have outlined these at the top, before doing a general summary.

So what is new in this guideline?

PERC – the Pulmonary Embolism Rule-out Criteria.

"I've tried simple templates or hard copies of locum packs before but find they so quickly become out of date. I like the way the NASGP's Standardised Practice Information Portal is easier to navigate and update than these paper-based systems."
