need info re: end cap changes

I'm new to this forum, an educator at a community hospital in Louisville, KY.

I'm looking for EBP to support how often we should be changing the end caps / claves on PIVs, PICCs, TLCs, etc.

Does anyone have any info? What are your P&Ps? What are you using as far as research support?

I have tried searching this site, ONS, and INS without success.
