This presentation will detail the development of a program to support bedside nurses to use point-of-care ultrasound skills for placing peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVC) for difficult intravenous access (DIVA) patients. Following a brief review of the current literature, we will describe the program in terms of need identification, content development, educational roll-out, and will conclude with program sustainment and troubleshooting. Exemplar educational instruments will be shared. This session is appropriate for anyone involved in ultrasound-guided PIVC insertion practice, programs, or the associated administrative teams who support them.
