This article identifies areas in which nurses can improve their communication with patients before and during an SPC insertion and offers recommendations for how to obtain a focused vascular history before an SPC insertion” Plohal (2019).

Abstract:

Communication and patient education are crucial aspects of I.V. therapy, in which the clinical nurse is charged with educating the patient and caregiver about the prescribed therapy and plan of care.1 A recent cross-sectional survey of consumer perspectives in 25 countries found that many patients who raised concerns during short peripheral catheter (SPC) insertion felt they were not being heard.2 Using a case study, this article identifies areas in which nurses can improve their communication with patients before and during an SPC insertion and offers recommendations for how to obtain a focused vascular history before an SPC insertion.
