Firstly, I’d like to say welcome. My aim is to deliver some thought-focussed and robust evidence and information for clinicians working in the world of vascular access and infection prevention. This blog is for helping everyday clinicians in accessing current information to improve care to the patient that is evidence-based, but also incorporating through discussion, the knowledge and expertise from like-minded clinicians at improving and advancing the practices of vascular access… while maintaining the patient as the primary focus of our care.
A recent article on Port in oncology practice: 3-monthly locking with normal saline for catheter maintenance, a preliminary report from the Journal of Vascular Access
A recent article on the Dynamics of blood flow and thrombus formation in a multi-bypass microfluidic ladder network from the Journal of Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering
A Comparison of the Single-Syringe Push-Pull Technique With the Discard Technique for Obtaining Blood Samples From Pediatric Central Venous Access Devices from the Journal of Pediatric Oncology Nursing
A recent publication on the Substantial harm associated with failure of chronic paediatric central venous access devices from BMJ Case Reports
Thought this was great – but so true. We need more of our healthcare practitioners to be more critical thinkers and demand quality evidence-based research to drive our specialty fields. There is always a high need for quality ongoing clinical research.
