Most recently, the C. R. Bard Foundation provided a generous grant to Project HOPE to support the provision of safe and efficient vascular access for patients in China.The goal of this program is to increase the capacity of health professionals to provide vascular access care and education in two select regions of China.The program will be implemented over one year and will include activities such as establishing standard vascular access protocol and clinical guidelines for hospitals and implementing a train-the-trainer methodology for hospital staff in the region. The long-term health impact of the program will be a decrease in vascular access complications among patients in participating hospitals in China.
