The development and evaluation of a prognostic model and clinical decision rule to help decide on cessation of anticoagulant therapy in patients with idiopathic venous thromboembolism (VTE)

This project aims to provide a rule that can identify patients who have suffered embolisms but who are at very low risk of further blood clots in either their legs or lungs. At the moment patients who suffer blood clots in these areas are treated for three to 12 months with oral anticoagulants because doctors are unsure about how long they should be treated. Lengthy treatment can cause problems, however, and some patients will develop further clots however long they are treated. It is important therefore that doctors are able to identify patients for whom it is safe to stop after routine treatment so that they can concentrate resources on those who need it. The study will utilise a large database of information to try to formulate the rule.
