Linda Kelly is Clinical Nurse Advisor with Vygon (UK) Ltd. Linda has a long and illustrious career in vascular access as a clinical nurse. In this podcast, Linda gives us a fascinating insight into her PhD study on the experience of patients living with a vascular access device. We discus the three clear themes that emerged from her study. As a taster (spoiler alert), I can tell you these are ‘device acceptance’, ‘dissatisfaction with repeated peripheral cannulation’ and ‘bewilderment and dismay at lack of staff competence’.
