Bayhealth, in conjunction with Exceptional Care for Children and state agencies in Delaware, will offer a community health education program that aims to provide education on central venous access devices. The IV and infusion therapy course will be held from 4 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, May 15, at Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus, 100 Wellness Way, Milford.
The course is designed for nurses in long-term care, assisted living, home healthcare, hospice and outpatient care settings.
Recent statistics show that the use of central venous access devices has been increasing outside the traditional hospital setting. The multidisciplinary team developed this course to reduce implications and empower healthcare professionals with proper tools needed to provide best practice in the care of central venous access devices.
The cost is $75, which includes supplies and policy guidelines. In addition, 3.83 nursing contact hours will be offered for this program. The deadline to register is Wednesday, May 8.
