Reducing emergency department visits in patients with deep vein thrombosis: introducing a standardised outpatient treatment pathway.

BMJ Open Qual 2021 Jun;10(2)

Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is an acute medical condition that requires urgent diagnosis and treatment to prevent significant morbidity and mortality. Patients with DVT frequently present to the emergency department (ED) because the necessary diagnostic investigations and medical treatment for successful outpatient management are not readily accessible in the outpatient clinics. A collaborative quality improvement project was undertaken to implement and evaluate a standardised outpatient treatment pathway designed to direct patients with a newly diagnosed DVT from the ultrasound department to the thrombosis clinic, where guideline-based management for DVT can be accomplished without ED visits.
