This one day conference focuses on advancing IV Therapy including implementing the NICE Guideline and Quality Standards for IV Therapy and improving quality and safety through delivering effective IV therapy at home (OPAT).
This conference will continue with a focus on the important issue of advancing IV therapy at home, delivering effective OPAT services (Outpatient Parenteral Antibiotic. Therapy). The OPAT service allows inpatients receiving intravenous antibiotics to be discharged early from hospital. Patients who are eligible for this service go home after receiving their last inpatient dose of antibiotics. The antibiotics they would have received whilst in hospital are then administered regularly by a nurse at the patient"s home thus reducing bed days and risk of infection, and improving care for patients. Delegates will have the opportunity to hear extended sessions focusing on how delivering IV Therapy at home (OPAT) is increasing and the impact on quality and productivity this brings.
