I am an engineering masters student at the University of Minnesota working on a project to design a better vascular access device. I was hoping some of the participants of this site would be interested in discussing their experiences and opinions regarding CVCs and PICCs. Many projects from this class go on to be commercialized so this could have a real positive impact.
Design a more user and patient friendly multi-lumen vascular access device in the CVC and PICC area.
~I would like
To interview nurses with experience and interest about what can be improved with the device, installation and user experience. Also what user and patient needs remain to be met.
~It would take
20 minutes of interview or a questionnaire to fill out offline.
Thank you for your time,
