Bayhealth to Offer IV and Infusion Therapy Training to Healthcare Professionals

Tuesday, February 11, 2020 |

As part of a multidisciplinary team effort, Bayhealth, Exceptional Care for Children and the State of Delaware have designed a community health program to provide education on central venous access devices.

This educational opportunity is tailored for nurses in long term care, assisted living, home health care, hospice, and outpatient care settings. The IV & Infusion Therapy course will be held on Wednesday, March 11 from 2 – 6 p.m. at Bayhealth Hospital, Kent Campus in General Foods Conference Room 3. Free parking is available in the parking garage.

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 complications and empower healthcare professionals with the proper tools needed to provide best practice in the care of central venous access devices.

The cost for this IV Therapy & Infusion Therapy course is $75 which includes supplies and policy guidelines. In addition, 3.5 nursing contact hours will be offered for this program.

The registration deadline is Wednesday, March 4. Call 302-744-7135 to register. For more information, contact Bayhealth Senior Nurse Manager for Dialysis, Vascular Access, and Medical Infusions Gina Collins, MSN, RN, VA-BC, at 302-744-7324.
