PICC Excellence, Inc. prides itself in being the premier trainer in PICC insertions for pediatrics and neonates. Instructor led, group training classes are held several times throughout the year at Wolfson Children`s Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida, conveniently located off I-95.

This Workshop is intended for beginning PICC inserters as well as adult practitioners wanting to gain more expertise in pediatric and neonatal PICC insertions. The first morning of the Workshop is spent reviewing the online class material, which completion is required prior to the workshop. Emphasis will be on special considerations for the pediatric and neonatal population such as distraction, analgesia, and sedation, as well as understanding basic sterile technique, managing insertion complications and reviewing x-rays. In the afternoon, participants will have the opportunity to see a simulated insertion, as well as perform a simulated insertion with hands-on practice, incorporating ultrasound.
The second and third days are shadowing opportunities with the Pediatric Vascular Access Team at Wolfson Children`s Hospital. This includes a tour of the facility, including procedure areas, and discussion of the evolution of the Pediatric Vascular Access program with regard to equipment, supplies, and policies.
