Virtual Infusion Education
Virtual Conference: Advancing Oncology PracticeIncludes a Live Event on 11/01/2019 at 12:00 PM (EDT)

Virtual Conference: Strong Nurses, Strong Practice
Caring for the caregiver is often a discounted aspect of health care. Nurses pour out their compassion, strength, abilities, and expertise on behalf of their patients, yet often, their own personal health and well-being is neglected. This focus track is dedicated to building strong nurses and strong practice. This entire program has been approved for 5 contact hours and 10 CRNI® RUs and meets the INS Meeting criteria.
Virtual Conference: Culture of Collaboration in Infusion Therapy
Nurses are in the “bull’s eye” of the health care paradigm that is the “triple aim” of transformative changes in health care: improved patient satisfaction, improved outcomes, and reduction of health care costs. The transition of infusion therapy between care units and departments in the acute care setting may also need to continue to settings outside of hospital walls including home care, ambulatory care, and long-term care. The unique skill set of the infusion nurse ensures that patients and families requiring continued infusion therapy, are connected to resources that enable successful navigation through a complex system. This entire program has been approved for 5 contact hours and 10 CRNI® RUs and meets the INS Meeting criteria.
Virtual Conference: Infusion Nursing: Why We Do What We Do

Today’s track will feature expert infusion nurses who will answer common practice questions, as well as provide foundational information about fluids and electrolytes and pain management strategies. This entire program has been approved for 5 contact hours and 10 CRNI® RUs and meets the INS Meeting criteria.

Virtual Conference: The Spectrum of Sepsis
Early recognition and treatment of sepsis is critical to surviving this life-threatening syndrome. Each year in the United States, sepsis claims more lives than breast cancer, prostate cancer, and HIV combined. Those who survive face chronic physical, cognitive, and psychological challenges as a result of the damage caused by the body’s response to the simplest infections. The sessions presented provide an opportunity to learn about the battle against this life-threatening condition—from diagnosis to discharge and beyond.
