Thrombosis UK is seeking just a few minutes of your time to help inform the development of new patient information resources.

Research has shown the benefits of providing patients with good-quality health information particularly when managing long-term conditions and supporting wellbeing.

In the UK national guidelines recommend that all patients diagnosed with a blood clot – whether this is a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE), are given information about their diagnosis and anticoagulant treatment.

However, Thrombosis UK is aware that how, what and when information is shared varies considerably across the UK. To address this we are seeking to develop two information resources as a free template or resource to offer to hospitals and medical settings:

  1. Information for anyone admitted into to hospital (for any reason) to help them understand more about the risk of hospital acquired thrombosis and how you can reduce your risk of developing a blood clot.
  2. An information resource for individuals diagnosed with a DVT or PE and intended to be shared at the time of diagnosis.

Our short survey will take just two-three minutes to complete, but your comments will help inform us to develop resources that can make a difference to preventing blood clots and to recovery after a diagnosis of a blood clot.
