PURPOSE OF THIS POLICY FRAMEWORK This Policy Framework aims to guide DHBs and health providers with planning and progressing improved prevention of hospital-associated VTE in adult hospitalised patients. It has been compiled in consultation with the multidisciplinary membership of the NZ VTE Prevention Steering Group and key opinion leaders drawn from a range of clinical sub-specialities and the Medical Colleges. This Policy Framework utilises current knowledge about effective ways of implementing VTE prevention activities in hospitals, and includes:
Our Expectations –HQSCommission will disseminate the information to all DHBs, Hospitals and encourage VTE prophylaxis. –Will ask NZVTEP for assistance if necessary. –We hope ALL DHBs, Hospitals in New Zealand will have a VTE prevention policy for adult patients, soon.
