Peripheral intravenous catheter (PIVC) insertions are the most common invasive hospital procedure performed worldwide. An estimated 35% to 50% failure rate due to complications of PIVC insertions creates negative patient, cost, and legal implications. Lack of consistent training can be attributed to the high variation in PVIC procedure performance.
The Fundamentals of Infusion Therapy (FIT) program consists of 8 modules with full motion graphics, videos, simulations, references, and critical thinking exercises that engage learners, while incorporating considerations for various health care settings and patient populations. The FIT program was developed in alignment with the INS’ Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice to provide learners with foundational knowledge of infusion therapy.
This program is suited for nursing students, nurses who are new to nursing practice, as well as experienced nurses wishing to advance their knowledge of infusion therapy best practices.
Join Natalie Nixon and Dr. Marlene M. Steinheiser as we discuss how the FIT program can benefit your nurse training curriculum.
