Description

Mastery of PICC insertions takes some time, especially with children and infants. The Pediatric/Neonatal Insertion Training class is designed to train the nurse or physician for the insertion of pediatric PICCs. The program includes an actual insertion of a neonate and an infant.

While general for all pediatric patients, specific class information includes:

1. Growth and development
2. Venous anatomy
3. Site selection
4. Use of pre-medications
5. Insertion techniques
6. Complications with intervention
7. Tips and tricks for the use of child life to provide distraction therapy that reduces movement

The examples and actual practice issues discussed by the instructor give the clinician a better understanding of PICC procedures in an effort to increase success rates. Overall, this is a clinically based class allowing clinicians to become qualified to begin inserting Pediatric PICCs, under supervision. There is no specific required number of supervised insertions; we recommend a minimum of five. Perform as many supervised insertions as necessary until the inserter and the supervisor feel comfortable with the inserter`s abilities. The program consists of 4 sections and a 50 question post test. Practicum competencies are included. You will need a preceptor or supervisor to check off your competency.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course the learner will be able to:
1. Master PICC insertions
2. Gain a better understanding of PICC procedures
3. Become qualified to begin inserting Pediatric PICCs, under supervision.
