Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Commentary on:
Alexandrou E, Murgo M, Calabria E, et al. Nurse-led central venous catheter insertion-procedural characteristics and outcomes of three intensive care based catheter placement services. Int J Nurs Stud 2012;49:162–8.

Implications for practice and research:
Nurse-led central venous catheter (CVC) placement is a safe alternative to medical led CVC placement.

Nurse-led CVC services can potentially improve organisational efficiency and patient safety.

Training, education and adequate procedural volumes are all necessary to ensure optimal outcomes.

Larger international studies are required to identify the impact of nurse-led CVC services.
