APRIL 18, 2019 | On February 15, 2019, the IAC posted several proposed revisions to the IAC Standards & Guidelines for Vein Center Accreditation for a 60-day public comment period. After receiving numerous comments and feedback on the proposed additions to the required training and experience pathway for Advanced Practice Providers performing ambulatory phlebectomy with tumescent anesthesia, the IAC will make additional revisions to this important Standard to better serve the vein center community. A revision to Advanced Practice Providers performing ambulatory phlebectomy with tumescent anesthesia and new Advanced Practice Providers training and experience pathways will be developed. A new comment period will be announced in the coming weeks.
