PIVs: Infection Risks, Evidence and Patient Satisfaction
There is a lot to consider when implementing an extended dwell time (clinical indication) policy for inpatient peripheral intravenous lines (PIVs). This 60-minute program discusses how a large, urban community hospital developed an education bundle and an insertion bundle that allowed for longer dwell times and a trend of decreased bloodstream infections.

A Whole New World: Advances in Pediatric Vascular Access
From the development of a vascular access service to the use of technology and innovations in the care and maintenance of vascular access devices, clinical outcomes have demonstrated a decrease in complications in this specific population. We will discuss clinical outcomes of a regional children's hospital and the advancements in central line securement and ECG technology.

Reducing CLABSI: The Relationship between Insertion and Care and Maintenance: Is the Dressing Important?
Explore evidence-based, central line insertion and maintenance techniques, discuss how insertion impacts maintenance and describe practice changes that can impact a patient's risk factors for CLABSI.
Selective Blindness and Peripheral IVs: Where Complications are Commonplace
Identify current clinical standards addressing peripheral vascular care. Discuss clinical challenges, including blood stream infections associated with peripheral catheter maintenance that can impact outcomes. Describe recommended practices and evidence-based interventions for peripheral catheter maintenance. Identify potential solutions to address these challenges and clinical studies that support these solutions.
