Medical and nursing personnel have traditionally focused on preventing and treating Infusion Phlebitis. Improvements in peripheral and central catheter insertion technique and care, and the introduction of safer vascular devices have contributed to a reduction in phlebitis but not its elimination. Chemical Phlebitis persists as a leading outcome.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
