PICC Line Training Program

PICC Line Training Program


Peripherally inserted central venous catheters (PICC) are an integral part of haematology and oncology care and treatment. On the one end PICCs provide excellent venous access for long term treatment but on the other end, they are prone for complications in not cared or maintained properly. The most important aspect of PICC line care is having a dedicated team of nurses who are trained in PICC insertion as well as care and maintenance to avoid post insertion complications and infections.

We at Rajiv Gandhi cancer Institute & Research Centre have a dedicated team of nurses who take care of PICC insertion, care and maintenance/ dressing and record keeping. This way we have 100% success rate of PICC insertion and a very good outcome in terms of very low catheter related problems.

We are a training centre for PICC and already have conducted several sessions of PICC training for doctors and nurses. Usual course frequency is once every 1-2 months Salient features of the training program are professionally prepared lectures by a faculty actively involved in PICC care and teaching too. The faculty includes doctors from department of haematology-oncology and microbiology as well as our PICC trained qualified nurses. Till early 2020s we have conducted 20 training sessions for 65 candidates including doctors and nurses from different parts of India and also neighbouring countries.

Our training program includes teaching modules, hands-on practice of PICC insertion, Care & Maintenance, Troubleshooting as well as record keeping and infection control measures. Training program concludes with formal exit test and certification in a ceremony.
