AbstractBackground / Problem Identified : 63% of all venous thromboembolic (VTE) events occur in the hospital setting, of which 70% may be preventable with appropriate VTE prophylaxis. Local and national quality improvement initiatives have led to development of a generic VTE prophylaxis protocol for hospital inpatients which can be found on page 3 of the hospital drug kardex. This quality improvement project aims to assess and improve the compliance amongst Non-Consultant Hospital Doctors (NCHDs) with completion of the VTE Protocol and as well as the appropriate prescription of VTE prophylaxis amongst surgical patients in Mercy University Hospital.
