Improving outcomes for peripheral vascular access in oncology


BD announce satellite symposium at #WoCoVA16 on improving outcomes for peripheral vascular access in oncology and chemotherapy administration”.

BD announce “The aim of this symposium is to discuss the specific needs of oncology patients in relation to their peripheral vascular access. We know

  • peripheral catheters are the most widely used invasive procedure in the acute care setting
  • there were nearly 3.5 million new cases of cancer in Europe in 2012
  • according to WHO, new cases of cancer worldwide are expected to rise by about 70% over the next two decades
  • cancer patients represent a challenging subset from a clinical and psychological point of view which can impact and make peripheral vascular access challenging

We urge everyone involved in oncology to attend to hear new ideas, have their chance to debate the future and understand what we can do for this important growing patient population.”
