About AVA

The Association for Vascular Access (AVA) is an association of healthcare professionals founded in 1985 to promote the emerging vascular access specialty.

Today, AVA stands at the forefront of protecting and saving lives via establishing best practices and promoting patient advocacy. Our multidisciplinary membership advances research, provides professional and public education to shape practice and enhance patient outcomes, and partners with the device manufacturing community to bring about evidence-based innovations in vascular access.

It's our mission to create greater public awareness of vascular access and to empower our members with significantly more educational resources, networking opportunities, and advocacy tools in support of and dedication to the patients that we are entrusted to serve.

Our History

In 1985, Suzanne Herbst, RN, MA, was working as a home infusion clinician in San Francisco, caring for patients and friends with AIDS. She realized that clinicians' knowledge of vascular access and vascular access devices (VADs) varied widely with some knowing very little. She noted that this lack of knowledge also applied to healthcare institutions and consumers.

Annual Conference

Our signature event is the Annual Scientific Meeting which will be held in Phoenix, September 17-19, 2017.
