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.
