Every Carolina Vascular Wellness educational course undergoes frequent review by a board of trained and experienced vascular access nurses, nurse practitioners, and physicians, ensuring up-to-date and relevant course content.
For our patients we provide hands-on, home-based education with take-home literature prior to discharge. These educational interactions give support to our patients, and make it possible for them to return home feeling confident and in control of their therapy. Areas covered include routine PICC, port and central line care, basic home medication administration, and simple troubleshooting tips. Live telephone support and assistance is available to our patients 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
