L3 — Developing a Value Framework for New Vascular Access Products or Practice

Tuesday, September 18
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Location: C160
Presentation CE Credits: 1

There has been a momentous shift towards value based healthcare yet value in health care remains largely unmeasured and misunderstood. A series of economic evaluations completed by the Alliance for Vascular Access Teaching and Research will be used to explore the development of a value framework for new vascular access products or practice. Specifically, the identification and measurement of costs and outcomes will be discussed. Implications of the inclusion or exclusion of key elements and from whose perspective will also be presented. Finally, the value framework presented here will be compared to other similar frameworks.

Dr Rickard has over 185 academic publications including the well-publicized Lancet study on routine versus clinical indication of peripheral intravenous catheters. Her achievements have been honored by, among others, the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame, and the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences.
