British Thoracic Society releas new set of quality standards for the Outpatient Management of Pulmonary Embolism (PE)

The British Thoracic Society has released a new set of quality standards for the Outpatient Management of Pulmonary Embolism (PE), based on the guidelines they published in 2018.
As part of their Quality Improvement process, they develop Quality Standards (QS) to accompany Guidelines. These Quality Standards are a set of specific and concise statements that describe the standards of care that patients should expect and that should be met by the health service, together with measurable markers of good practice. They are designed to be challenging, yet, achievable, and to drive improvements in care.
