There is a lack of standard minimal requirements for the training of insertion techniques and maintenance of central venous access devices (CVADs). An international evidence-based consensus task force was established through the World Congress of Vascular Access (WoCoVA) to provide definitions and recommendations for training and insertion of CVADs. Medical literature published from February 1971 to April 2012 regarding 'central vascular access', 'training', 'competency', 'simulation', and… 

Tables from this paper

Vascular access specialist teams for device insertion and prevention of failure.
TLDR
This systematic review failed to locate relevant published RCTs to support or refute the assertion that vascular access specialist teams are superior to the generalist model, and recommended standard methodological procedures recommended by Cochrane and used Covidence software to assist with file management.
Vascular access specialist teams for device insertion and prevention of failure
TLDR
This systematic review failed to locate relevant published RCTs to support or refute the assertion that vascular access specialist teams are superior to the generalist model, and there is a need for good-quality R CTs to evaluate the efficacy of a vascular access Specialist team approach for vascular access device insertion and care for the prevention of failure.
Landmark Central Venous Catheterization is Effective but Ultrasound Helps Even in Experienced Hands
TLDR
The data suggests that with proper skill and experience, landmark anatomic position is effective for central venous catheterization, however ultrasound is helpful in specific difficult cases.
Outcomes of Simulation-Based Education for Vascular Access: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
A well-designed and updated systematic review of Randomized controlled trials found that simulation-based education increased the overall success rate compared with traditional education, but it was unclear whether simulation- based education actually reduces the incidence of adverse events.
A Review of Central Venous Access Using Ultrasound Guidance Technology.
TLDR
In addition to cannulating and accessing a central vein, ultrasound can be used to rapidly confirm placement and to rule out complications such as pneumothorax.
Establishing the required components for training in ultrasoundguided peripheral intravenous cannulation: a systematic review of available evidence.
TLDR
Competency on ultrasound-guided peripheral intravenous cannulation can be achieved after following a brief training in a fixed curriculum, consisting of a didactic training session, a simulated hands-on component, and is completed after a supervised live-case training.
Patterns, appropriateness and outcomes of peripherally inserted central catheter use in Brazil: a multicentre study of 12 725 catheters
TLDR
Use of PICCs in Brazilian hospitals appears to be safe and comparable with North America, however, opportunities to improve appropriateness remain and future studies examining barriers and facilitators to improving device use in Brazil would be welcomed.
Rating Scale for the Assessment of Competence in Ultrasound-guided Peripheral Vascular Access – a Delphi Consensus Study
TLDR
A global rating scale (RS) for assessment of UGVA competence based on opinions on the content from ultrasound experts in a modified Delphi consensus study is developed.
European Society of Anaesthesiology guidelines on peri-operative use of ultrasound-guided for vascular access (PERSEUS vascular access).
TLDR
This paper will focus on the use of ultrasound-guidance for vascular access and the importance of proper training for achieving competency and full proficiency before performing any ultrasound-guided vascular procedure must be emphasised.
Training and Education
TLDR
The second quadrant of the Vessel Health and Preservation (VHP) model requires a qualified inserter, a clinician who has undertaken a comprehensive clinical and vascular assessment and is applying the latest evidence and guidelines to select the most appropriate device for patient treatment, leading to the successful insertion of a peripheral or central VAD.

International evidence-based recommendations on ultrasound-guided vascular access
TLDR
The recommendations following the conference suggest the advantage of 2D vascular screening prior to cannulation and that real-time ultrasound needle guidance with an in-plane/long-axis technique optimises the probability of needle placement.
Precision in Central Venous Catheter Tip Placement: A Review of the Literature
TLDR
An overall accuracy rate for first attempt placement of a PICC catheter in the ideal tip position is calculated and a composite of outcomes associated with tip placement was analyzed and an overall percent proficiency of accurate catheter tip placement calculated.
Procedural Competence in Internal Medicine Residents: Validity of a Central Venous Catheter Insertion Assessment Instrument
TLDR
A consensus-driven procedural assessment tool with data-driven standards for basic proficiency and competence that faculty can use to assess residents as they perform CVC insertion is created and validated.

TLDR
A multidisciplinary team used FMEA to identify high-priority failure modes and to develop online and hands-on training modules to decrease the frequency, diminish the severity, and improve the early detection of these failure modes.
Effect of the implementation of NICE guidelines for ultrasound guidance on the complication rates associated with central venous catheter placement in patients presenting for routine surgery in a tertiary referral centre.
TLDR
The implementation of NICE guidelines has been associated with a significant reduction in complication rates in the authors' tertiary referral centre, and it is imperative that routine use of US guidance becomes more widespread.
