2RESEARCH PROPOSALPrevention of venous thrombo-embolism (VTE) in hospitalised patients usingsubcataneous low molecular weight heparins (LMWHS)AbstractResearch is an integral part of professional and academic development. The combination ofapplied research skills and knowledge and advanced clinical knowledge is a suitableopportunity for students to continuously improve the clinical practice. The proposed researchwould be addressing the research question of “Does the administration of subcutaneousinjections of Low Molecular Weight Heparins (LMWHs) prevent Venous Thrombo-embolism (VTE) in hospitalised patients?” The study would be nonblinded randomisedcontrolled trial that would compare the administration of Enoxaparin, an LMWH, as theintervention group, with a control group of no treatment. The research would be a valuableone in the clinical field since the change in patient care guideline is probable.

4RESEARCH PROPOSALIntroductionThe role of a paramedic practitioner in a clinical setting is a valuable one that entailsadequate knowledge and practical skills. Continual professional development is essential forthis group of professionals to address the evolving trends of healthcare services. The primarystrategy to enhance skills and knowledge is to carry out primary research that addresses anyclinical concern. Through such research one can gain insights into a clinical topic that hasdrawn the attention of practitioners and researchers with the aim of improving patientoutcomes (Bledsoe et al., 2016). The present paper is on a proposed research on the topic ofprevention of Venous thromboembolism in clinical settings. Venous thromboembolism(VTE) has been indicated as a major and adverse complication arising in clinical settingsamong adult patients that this group of professionals is to address (Agnelli et al. 2013). Lowmolecular Weight Heparin (LMWH) are anticoagulant molecules that are used in clinicalpractice to address different patient complications (Szummer et al., 2015). The relationbetween LMWH and VTE has been the topic of interest at present. The study is proposed inthis regard that is based on principles of research study methods. The significance of thestudy, research question, study design and methodology are discussed in details in thefollowing sections.BackgroundVenous thromboembolism (VTE) is the disease including both pulmonary embolism(PE) and Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) that is lethal and affects hospitalised as well asnonhospitalised patients. The disease is more common in hospitalised patients and recursfrequently. It leads to long-term complications such as post-thrombotic syndrome and chronicthromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (Heit et al., 2016). As opined by Grosse et al.,(2016) VTE is most common cardiovascular disease after stroke and acute coronary
