Description

Infusion therapy is accomplished using a variety of devices that require specific training and expertise. Advocating for the most appropriate vascular access device as well as maintaining these devices also necessitates a level of education that is specific to the discipline of infusion therapy. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), specialized infusion teams have shown unequivocal effectiveness in reducing the incidence of catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSI), associated complications, and cost. Using best practices, the infusion team meets expected outcomes of patients, staff, and management. This session identifies the best practices that have been identified in establishing and maintaining an effective infusion team.

*Note: Participants who attended the live version of this program at the 2011 INS Fall National Academy of Infusion Therapy and One-Day Program in Los Angeles, CA (November 2011) are not eligible to receive contact hours or CRNI® recertification units through this online program.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Identify three responsibilities of the infusion team that improve patient outcomes.
2. Discuss the process of identifying best practice for the patient who has a vascular access device and how to institute and champion that process.
