Peripheral IV Insertion and Management Workshop

This workshop has been designed to help RN's gain didactic and "hands-on" experience with the theory and skills needed to insert a peripheral IV. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned veteran needing a review, the program will enhance your dexterity. Content includes criteria for vein selection, vein location and identification, selection of supplies and equipment, and potential complications of IV therapy. A review of developmental considerations for pediatric patients will be presented.  Information on legal aspects, malpractice insurance, and proper documentation will be included. Supplies will be provided for practicing the insertion of peripheral IV catheters using anatomical models and a computer simulation device - in full compliance with OSHA standards. The program will incorporate the Infusion Nurses Society (INS) 2016 Standards of Practice. Individual competency validation will be provided by the instructor at the end of the program. Enrollment is limited to maximize learning.

I want to tell you how much I enjoyed the Peripheral IV workshop on 4/18.  I've already been able to apply what I learned in doing my weekly infusions. Many valuable pearls were learned and applied to my daily practice.
