“Many patients admitted to hospital or in receipt of health care in the other settings, including their own homes, will become recipients of one or more infusion therapies at some stage. Total parenteral nutrition (TPN), cancer chemotherapy and other infusion therapies are increasingly delivered in community settings, reflecting the changing approach to care delivery/commissioning and patient choice. These initiatives, alongside the development of outpatient and home delivered parenteral antimicrobial therapy (OHPAT), has led to the need for greater flexibility to meet patients, clinical and lifestyle needs.” RCN

This conference focuses on IV access: managing uncompliant patients, and patients with difficult venous access.  Difficulties in IV access due to individual patient factors or patients with difficult venous access often lead to repeated failed attempts which can result in delayed diagnosis and treatment.

This conference will enable you to:

  • Network with colleagues who are working to improve IV access and IV therapy
  • Learn from outstanding practice in managing difficult venous access
  • Reflect on national developments and learning
  • Improve the way you work with uncompliant patient groups including people with learning disabilities, children, IV drug users and people with needle phobia
  • Develop your skills in vein assessment
  • Understand patient suitability and assessment for OPAT
  • Understand how you can improve vessel health and preservation
  • Identify key strategies for improving success rates in vascular access
  • Ensure you are up to date with the latest evidence
  • Self assess and reflect on your own practice
  • Gain cpd accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence
