Abstract:

<b>Background:</b> There was an identified gap in recognizing the risk of harm from PIV infiltrations and extravasations and, to uncircumcised males pre, during, and post catheterization. This indicated a need for training, education, and competency assessment. Extensive product searching to assist with these two simulations/return demonstrations revealed no pediatric task trainers available for purchase. <b>Purpose:</b> To provide education, training, and simulation for two nursing skills. The first skill was identifying, assessing, and measuring peripheral IV infiltrations and extravasations. The second was catheterization care/insertion for uncircumcised males. <b>Methods</b>: Development of two task trainers: 1. arms for nurses to assess and measure PIV infiltrations/extravasations by NPD Practitioner and colleagues; and, 2. NPD Practitioner and the simulation team created and produced task trainers of an uncircumcised infant penis. Both task trainers allowed nurses to return demonstrate competency for these two nursing skills. <b>Conclusions:</b> The potential implications for these competency assessment programs are to prevent harm to patients. Pediatric task trainers were not available; therefore, creative thinking with team collaboration and the use of medical supplies and household/craft materials was required to provide simulation opportunities.
