About Infusion Therapy Institute
Clinicians performing vascular access device (VAD) insertions and administering infusion therapies require specialized knowledge, skills and critical thinking. It is a fact that RNs, LPNs and allied healthcare professionals enter the workforce with little or no focused training to place and/or manage VADs, and to administer intravenous therapies.
Infusion therapies shall be provided according to the federal and state laws, infusion therapy standards of practice, Center for disease control and prevention (CDC) guidelines for catheter related infection prevention, and organizational policies and procedures. Regulations, standards and guidelines mandate organized training, initial and ongoing competency validations for clinicians in all healthcare settings.
