During the 7th World Congress of Vascular Access 2022 (WoCoVA) in Greece, Mr Roland van Rens, RN, MaANP, presented the outcomes of establishing a peripheral neonatal vascular access team.

The strength of this study is the inclusion of all peripheral IV insertion attempts and the large data set.
The results support the contention that a dedicated peripheral vascular access team can positively impact clinically important vascular access quality measures and they strongly believe this information can be used to support new ways of organising IV access workflows in other units.
