IV Therapy Summit 2019

Difficult Venous Access & Improving Practice with uncompliant patients
Wednesday 4th December 2019
The Studio Conference Centre Manchester

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.

Chair and speakers include:
Jackie Nicholson, Global Committee Member, World Congress on Vascular Access, and Nurse Consultant, Vascular Access, St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Andrew Barton, Chair, NIVAS, and Advanced Nurse Practitioner in Vascular Access and IV Therapy, Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust

“Many healthcare professionals have been involved with patients who were unable to cooperate with IV therapy and vascular access procedures. The uncompliant patient in healthcare is perhaps the most challenging aspect of this clinical specialism. Learning strategies to help the patient feel more involved and supported is key.” Andrew Barton, Chair, NIVAS & Advanced Nurse Practitioner in Vascular Access and IV Therapy Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust
