Abstract
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) management is rapidly evolving and staying up-to-date is challenging. We identified the most practice-informing articles published in 2017 relevant to the non-specialist provider managing VTE. We performed a systematic search of the literature (Appendix A), limiting the search to a publication date of 2017. Two reviewers screened the 2735 resulting abstracts to identify high-quality, clinically relevant publications related to VTE management. One hundred and six full-text articles were considered for inclusion. The five authors used a modified Delphi method to reach consensus on inclusion of 7 articles for in-depth appraisal, following predetermined criteria of clinical relevance to non-specialist providers, potential for practice change, and strength of the evidence.
