Bayhealth, Exceptional Care for Children and state agencies within Delaware designed a Community Health Education program to provide education on central venous access devices.

Bayhealth will facilitate and launch this educational opportunity for nurses in long-term care, assisted living, home health care, hospice and outpatient care settings. The IV & Infusion Therapy course will be held from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Nov. 14 at Bayhealth Hospital, Kent Campus, 640 S. State St., Dover, in Pavilion 2. 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 implications and empower health care professionals with the proper tools needed to provide best practice in the care of central venous access devices.

The goal of this class is to provide basic education of IV and infusion therapy. The course will also help keep Delawareans in their respective communities while receiving treatment and provide valuable resources to healthcare professionals.

The cost is $75, which includes supplies and policy guidelines. In addition, three nursing contact hours will be offered for this program.
