Totally implanted catheter, which is effective in deceasing complications related to peripheral intravenous therapy, is widely used in patients with cancer. Thus, the goal of this study was to identify the nursing actions regarding the manipulation and management of totally implanted catheter in patients with cancer. An integrative literature review was conducted. A final sample of 15 articles was evaluated. Findings indicated that nursing actions are directed to the catheter dwelling time, the catheter-related complications, the manipulation and management of the catheter, the patients' perception of the catheter, and the education of patients regarding the catheter care. These findings show the complexities of nursing actions regarding the management of totally implanted catheters. In addition, the findings can be useful for professionals who do not work in oncology who may need to apply this knowledge in their clinical practice.
