VTE prevention: ‘real-world practice’ • ENDORSE survey: (2008) 52% patients at risk for VTE 50% receiving prophylaxis (surgical 59%; medical 40%) • APPTG survey:(APPTG 2nd Annual Audit, 2008) 99% acute Trusts were aware of CMO’s recommendations and NICE guideline 70% undertaking ‘documented mandatory risk assessment’ 86% have thrombosis committees 87% educate staff re: risk of VTE • VERITY survey: 94% have thrombosis committees >80% have guidelines for medical and surgical thromboprophylaxis <10% to 95% patients risk assessed for VTE 1 in 8 using DH VTE risk assessment

  12. VTE Exemplar Centres • Resource for demonstration of best practice • Based within hospitals or networks with an existing track record of excellent VTE management • Expanded role including quality control, audit and education • Help develop national risk assessment strategy, audit tools, centralised educational material to support local programmes • King’s College Hospital was first NHS exemplar centre & the London Clinic in the independent sector • Network of exemplar centres being developed: 8 exemplar centres at end of 2008

  13. VTE Exemplar Centres: Requirements • Chief Executive agreement / support • Mechanism in place for VTE risk assessment • Audit trail – evidence of prevention management across organisation • Multidisciplinary team approach • Education and raising awareness re: VTE • Ability to act as a resource to spread good practice • To apply e-mail: roopen.arya@kcl.ac.uk

  14. VTE exemplar centres: main elements • Thrombosis committees • Thrombosis teams • Implementation of VTE risk assessment and thromboprophylaxis • Audit • Education and awareness • Clinical research into VTE

  15. VTE exemplar centres in action: Models of care: • Excellence at prevention of VTE in hospitalised patients • Comprehensive care of VTE • VTE prevention in the community Exemplars will include: • NHS Hospital Trusts • Primary Care Trusts • Strategic Health Authorities • Independent sector
