Abstract

In recent years, the need for the vascular access surveillance has been growing steadily. In our dialysis department, a dedicated multidisciplinary team is active since 10 years. The Team is composed of 2 nephrologists and 5 nurses who take care of AV related surgery, AV management in the dialysis rooms, infection control, nurses education and audit. Having an AV Team allowed to monitor and efficiently control the infection rate (0.65/1000 CVC days) and contained the AV management related costs while improving patients’ quality of life. Furthermore, it has been a reason for continuous professional growth. The article describes the major organization and structural and professional characteristics of our AV Team setting.
