Abstract:

Interventions that address the increasing threat of multidrug resistance are the responsibility of all health care disciplines. Vascular access teams ensure that vascular access needs are met, facilitating antimicrobial agent administration. Competent vascular access practice includes participation on interprofessional teams and provision of expert knowledge that enables medication administration and process monitoring.
