Evidence-based Central Vascular Access Management: A Call to Action!
Recorded On: 05/21/2018
Central vascular access devices (CVADs) can be in place from hours to weeks and even long after. This session will discuss the requirement for evidence-based, postinsertion vascular access management to reduce clinical and economic risks from hospital to home.
After the session, attendees will be able to consider the foundational elements for evidence-based, care and maintenance bundles (CMBs) for CVADs, discuss the implementation of an evidence-based CMB for 1 group of home infusion patients, and acknowledge the need for standardized use of evidence-based practice and products used in CMBs from hospital to home care.
