Is there a database of hospital IV/PICC teams available both in the US and internationally? This would provide easier access for bench-marking and exchange of information. Thanks
No such list is available and it might be almost impossible to make such a list. There is no single model or structure for these teams, so one group may call themselves a team when they are actually a group of nurses trained to insert PICCs but actually have other job titles. I wish it were as easy as it seems. I have been working on this issue for more than a year now and it gets more complicated instead of easier. Lynn
