AbstractThe primary objective of this study was to test the feasibility of creating a central venous catheter blood draw bundle checklist to ensure adherence to the evidence-based blood draw procedure. This study included establishing checklist reliability and validity and periodic observations in 2 inpatient pediatric oncology units. The findings provided support for the reliability and validity of this checklist based on content validity, test-retest reliability, interrater agreement, and internal consistency and reinforced the need for periodic observations to ensure consistency in proper central venous catheter blood draw procedures.
