“During my years in clinical practice and nurse education, a large part of my role has involved teaching the skills of maintaining vascular access devices. Recently there have been major advances in vascular access; research, technology and innovations have had a major effect on catheter care procedures and subsequently education around vascular access.”

“One area in which this is apparent is that of catheter securement. We are all aware that the ultimate successful outcome for any vascular access device is that it remains in place for the duration of treatment.”
