Intravenous news: The Scottish Vascular Access Network was launched on the 18th May 2009. The ScottishÂ Vascular Access Network have come together to establish a collaborative group which will develop credibility by terminating the unknowns, discrepancies and misunderstandings surrounding the use of Vascular Access in Scotland. This will ultimately benefit patients and health-care professionals across the country as SCOTVAN aim to involve every Health Board in Scotland. Their aim is to promote sharing best practice and provide a platform for discussion and debate. This will be achieved by IV Therapy Nursing Staff, Educators and Infection Control Nurses networking with other IV therapy Specialists across Scotland.
