IPS IV Forum Conference

The IPS IV Forum Conference – Between the Lines

The IPS (Infection Prevention Society) hosted their 7th annual IV Forum Conference – Between the Lines – on Thursday 16th November 2017 in London, UK.

There is now recognition of the risk of infection to patients to whom IV therapy is administered. As a result, this one day IV Forum Conference focused on providing education and raising awareness of best practice based on the current evidence available.

Topics included:

  • Using a quality improvement tool to adapt and adopt Vessel Health & Preservation (VHP) for use in paediatrics
  • Standards for Infusion Therapy – What do you need to know?
  • Vascular Access Passport Update
  • How safe is IV Therapy?
  • Challenges and Opportunities to Achieve Antimicrobial Stewardship in a Community Setting
  • Medical Adhesive Related Skin Injury (MARSI) in Vascular Access.
