BRS / VASBI Needling Recommendations

On behalf of the BRS Vascular Access Special Interest Group and Vascular Access Society of Britain & Ireland (VASBI) we are pleased to announce the launch of  the Clinical Practice Recommendations for Needling of Arterio venous Fistulae and Grafts for Haemodialysis.

The authors are to be congratulated on creating an in depth guide which includes theory, practical skills and tools that can be used in the workplace to improve clinical practice and ultimately patient experience.

This initiative demonstrates the value of collaborative working across multi-professional groups to share their expert knowledge.

The recommendations can be accessed and downloaded below:
