Characterization of barriers and facilitators of guideline concordant extended venous thromboembolism prophylaxis after major cancer surgery

Date Added
July 26th, 2023
PRO Number
Pro00127734
Researcher
Thomas Curran

List of Studies


Keywords
Bowel, Cancer/Gastrointestinal, Surgery
Summary

While blood clots after major cancer surgery are common and harmful to patients, the medications available to decrease blood clot risk are seldom used despite the recommendation of multiple professional medical societies. The reasons why these medications are seldom prescribed is not well understood. We aim to characterize barriers and facilitators to extended blood clot prophylaxis guideline adherence as perceived by stakeholders via interviews with a diverse group of patients and surgeons at hospitals within the MUSC Health system that routinely perform cancer surgery. These findings will inform educational interventions to improve the use of guideline concordant care and mitigate observed disparities in cancer care.
