Consumer Advisory group

We are keen to hear from consumers about their experience with vascular access devices. If you would like to join a Consumer Advisory group and provide your thoughts about vascular access device insertion and care, please email us

We are seeking input and feedback from consumers with experience of a vascular access device to participate in a short survey about what vascular access information is important to them. This involves completing a short, online survey about vascular access variables proposed by our research team (e.g., "pain rating", "difficult venous access") and rating their importance according to the individual's own experience.
