Right Patient. Right Time. Right Line.

Vascular Access requires timely assessment, planning, insertion and follow-up. Appropriate device selection can impact the length of stay and complications, therefore, early assessment of a patient who requires a vascular access device should be considered upon admission.

 

This series of accredited webinars will help to ensure safe and effective approaches to vascular access for all practitioners.
