Access Device Standards

The book, Access Device Standards of Practice for Oncology Nursing, provides best practices and in-depth education related to the access devices used for patients undergoing cancer treatment to help limit potential infections or complications associated with them. With evidence-based information related to the insertion, maintenance, procedural, and removal standards of various types of access devices, nurses can be prepared to handle the complexities of patients who have access devices.

The standards can help strengthen institutional policies, limit complications, and improve outcomes in patients with access devices.
