The journal of ‘Nursing Research and Practice’ have announced a call for papers “Intravenous therapy is administered to millions of patients every day and peripheral cannulation is the most common invasive clinical procedure performed in hospitals worldwide. New technology related to vascular access devices is being developed to either reduce complications such as materials used for catheters that reduce infection or thrombosis; improve methods to perform successful insert and ensure correct tip placement and securement of the VAD; or provide the patients with more choices and involvements in the types of VADs available. Yet there are basic questions that still need to be answered about the frequency of changing of equipment such as dressings and administration sets and why nurses still fail to comply with the many well-publicised infection prevention recommendations.”
