Baxa Corporation Launches Call for Research Papers
March 28, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsEnglewood, Colo. – Baxa Corporation announces a call for research papers involving its new PadLock® Set Saver product. The PadLock device is designed to promote best practice for aseptic IV administration set storage; preventing contamination of the administration set when disconnected from the patient. The recently released product provides temporary storage of the IV administration line between drug administrations, replacing the need for single-use, sterile caps. Baxa is offering several unrestricted grants for research studies on the usage and benefits of its new product. Grants will be awarded for research intended for presentation at the INS, AVA, APIC or similar meetings and/or publication in the Journal of Infusion Nursing, Journal of Vascular Access, American Journal of Infection Control or similar publications.
“We are interested in objective research studies on areas of interest to healthcare providers, such as cost-benefit studies, aseptic techniques and best practices,” says Megan Kleckner, Product Manager of the announcement. ”Research studies regarding compliance with best practice and the reduction of infection risks are also key targets.” Professionals interested in pursuing the grants should submit contact information and research ideas via email to email@example.com. Submissions will be reviewed and applicants responded to by Baxa Corporation in a timely manner.
