PIV for Nuclear Medicine Training
Peripheral Venous Access for Nuclear Medicine Training Course Summary
During the PIV for Nuclear Medicine Training course, a Vascular Access Board Certified (VA-BC), practicing nurse clinician will teach and train nurses and nuclear medicine technologists how to correctly and proficiently start intravenous lines in order to mitigate risk of radiopharmaceutical extravasations resulting from poor access techniques. Training includes instruction on proper vein and catheter selections, how to use various catheters safely, how to properly secure the peripheral intravenous line, how to reduce multiple needle sticks, and if available, how to use ultrasound for needle visualization and vein selection. Through didactic (classroom), simulation, and hands-on training, participants gain the knowledge and skills required to properly start intravenous lines and reduce radiopharmaceutical extravasations. Each training class is customized to the unique healthcare settings of the participants involved, their specific supplies and equipment, and addresses problem areas identified prior to and during the course. Instruction also includes clinical reviews of nuclear extravasations cases to illustrate the importance of practicing safe and proper administration of nuclear medicine. Upon completion, participants will be trained in identifying and treating nuclear extravasations and be able to safely and confidently start peripheral venous access catheters for the delivery of nuclear medicine.
