This chapter examines the specific issues connected to clinical decision-making concerning whether or not to treat a venous thromboembolism (VTE) patient with advanced cancer in the palliative care setting. It discusses how strategies from the broader literature on decision-making in healthcare could be applied to the palliative care setting. It recommends the use of a tool called clinical decision analysis which can integrate both research evidence and measures of patient preferences in order to suggest what the optimum option may be for that patient.

Keywords:   VTE, advanced cancer, palliative care, clinical decision-making, clinical decision analysis
