Summary

Although deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is now widely managed on an outpatient basis, at a practical level there remains a potential for uncertainty as to which patient might prove suitable and in particular in regard to the lines of responsibility of each department involved in the delivery of clinical care. This guideline sets out recommendations for the standardization of the outpatient management of patients with DVT.
