Impact of a PICC care nursing educational program

"Results of the study indicated that training courses should be held every 6 months, including permanent or periodic feedback" Emamgholi et al (2020).

Abstract:

All nurses who care for neonates with peripherally inserted central catheters require enhanced awareness of the current practice guidelines and standards. This study evaluated the impact of an educational program on nurses’ performance from May 2016 to July 2017 at 4 hospitals in Tehran, Iran. The performance of 80 nurses was observed and scored 3 times before the intervention. Four weeks after the last training session, their performance was observed with the same researcher, and the checklist was completed 3 times in different working shifts. Four 35- to 45-minute training sessions were completed with a 4-week follow-up. Results of the study indicated that training courses should be held every 6 months, including permanent or periodic feedback.
