A vascular access minimum dataset
Check out our recent work to develop international recommendations for VA data capture
..including standardized catheter definitions and a top 10 list for when you can't collect all the data you'd like.
Quality data to monitor VA safety is rarely available at the hospital level. This makes it hard to benchmark practices within your hospital, nationally and with your international neighbors.
"Perhaps the "problem" is that the current quality indicators for vascular access, are primarily limited to CLABSI and phlebitis".
Measuring vascular access care quality through comparative healthcare data collection, analysis and feedback is one way healthcare quality measurement has evolved in recent decades.In 2019 convened a panel of international vascular access experts to develop a vascular access minimum dataset that can be used to collect standardised vascular access data.
This dataset and associated resources including standardised catheter definitions and a top 10 priority list is available to you free of charge and we are happy to work with you to adapt it to suit your healthcare context.
