Perceptions of Adult Hospitalized Patients with Difficult Venous Access Experiencing Short Peripheral Catheter Insertion: An Opportunity for Clinicians to Improve Patients’ Experiences
Includes a Live Event on 01/27/2021 at 1:00 PM (EST)
Hospitalized patients require venous access for procedures, treatments, or therapies. The short peripheral catheter (SPC) is one option for patients who need intravenous (IV) access. Patients with difficult vasculature sometimes require multiple attempts to obtain SPC access. This session will explore the perceptions and experiences of patients with difficult access, requiring multiple attempts to obtain SPC access. Ways clinicians can improve the patient’s experience will also be discussed.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this webinar, learners will be able to:
a) describe the physical and emotional impact the SPC insertion may have on a patient with difficult venous access and
b) identify at least three measures to improve the experience of the patient with difficult access.
