The aim of this study was to evaluate the quality of central venous catheter (Port-a-cath, Groshong and Hohn) management protocols in Oncology centres in an Italian region. A retrospective study was performed in 25 hospitals, only 10 of which provided evidence that they utilized a central venous catheter management protocol. The submitted protocols were evaluated in terms of completeness and of adherence to manufacturers' indications and to recommendations of the Centre for Diseases Control. Study results show that overall, there is poor adherence to the basic quality requirements considered and only two of the ten protocols examined were found to be complete. Also, there is wide variability between the protocols with significant differences in the type of instructions provided in the different hospitals.
