The 5th NIVAS Conference
The Grand, Thistle Bristol City Centre, 9 - 10 June 2015
Challenges and the future of IV therapy
Techniques and products in infusion therapy and vascular access are continually changing and improving, so now
more than ever, there is a need for healthcare professionals from all disciplines across the UK to work towards a coordinated
approach to practice. This conference looked at some of the challenges that face all those who are facilitating and delivering
infusion therapy whether in the acute or community setting.
The conference focused on the future of infusion therapy and vascular access with contributions from experts in this field.
Delegates had the opportunity to share practices, learn from each other and present their work through oral presentations and poster exhibition.
We would like to thank our major sponsors:
