Location: C171-172
Presentation CE Credits: 1

Every child that comes in contact with a medical institution requires vascular access on some level. Either they need to have blood levels drawn, a peripheral intravenous catheter placed, or long term vascular access established. In order to continue the PediSIG mission to reduce needlesticks for pediatric patients, an international survey was developed in order to assess, at an institutional level, the amount of; education, training, and competency required for clinicians in order to provide vascular access to pediatric and neonatal patients. Along with assessing vascular access models and core educational standards we are also assessing institutional policies in which pain control and emotional support are provided for each child. By surveying our membership and additional vascular access clinicians we hope to identify trends in vascular access delivery models and also identify gaps in care that are not congruent with evidence based best practice. This survey is a first step in creating best practice recommendations that will benefit every child who requires vascular access.
