Facilitating the achievement of optimal wellness for renal disease patients
Risky Business - Catheter Use
Vascular Access education for patients with a specific focus on the risks of catheter use as a patient safety and quality of life issue was chosen for the Network 10 Educational Campaign for 2015. The goal of this campaign is to expand on the number of patients who choose to pursue a permanent access. This page houses educational resources and tools that can be used by facility staff and patient representatives to educate catheter only patients on the need for a permanent access. This page also houses educational materials about maintaining and caring for permanent accesses already in place to prevent the loss of a permanent access.
