Abstract: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is currently the first cause of death in hospitalised patients and has been identified as a national patient safety priority. Despite the availability of high-level evidence based guidelines for optimal VTE prophylaxis, guideline implementation remains inconsistent and the incidence of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) in hospitalised patients remains high.
