About the Affiliate

CVAA was formerly known as the Canadian Vascular access Nurses Association (CINA).  CINA was formed in 1975 and was an incorporated organization dedicated to uniting vascular access nurses and other professionals involved in the field of IV therapy.  

In 2006, CINA realized it needed to change its name and organization to reflect the transformation in health care that focused on an evidence-based multi-disciplinary approach to vascular access patient treatment.  CINA became the Canadian Vascular Access Association (CVAA).

The objectives of the Association are:
a) To establish and promote vascular access and infusion therapy guidelines that will enhance patient care and patient safety.
b) To establish and promote educational programs which will contribute to the above.
c) To provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of all matters related to vascular access and infusion therapy.
d) To establish cooperation and liaison with other groups, associations, institutions and bodies in matters     
CVAA will advocate for safe, quality care across the health care continuum by providing leadership and promoting education, partnerships, knowledge, and research in vascular access with a vision for optimal client outcomes.
