5:30 PM EDT: BD Evening Symposium - Using Data to Drive Outcomes: The Key to Personalized Vascular Access Care

A clinician’s quest to advance practice for the betterment of patients can be a challenge when they are not armed with the tools, resources, or funding to fuel change. Data is often seen as an IT project or for publication and not necessarily a means for patient improvement. This presentation looks at how available data within the health care setting can become a valuable asset in the pursuit to drive change and deliver personalized care. From identifying an issue and establishing a planned method of collection, this presentation will discuss the factors that drive decision making, and how data can help strengthen a position for effecting change, ultimately resulting in a compassionate approach specific to each patient.

Learning Outcomes: 
1. Identify at least three historical studies which had a major impact on vascular access 
2. Name at least three significant vascular access practice changes
3. Compare standardized care versus personalized care
4. Consider disease and co-morbidity impacts on vascular access
5. Identify mechanisms to drive change through data
6. Discuss ways to collect data and consider tools available
7. Consider necessary components of data tool development
