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. The session will conclude with a mother’s testimony on the impact infusion nurses have had in her family’s life.

Virtual Conference: Risky Business in Infusion Therapy
Risk is inherent to any specialty and clinical practice setting. Infusion therapy is no exception. This virtual program will speak to some of these risks and how best to identify and mitigate them.
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.
Virtual Conference: Vascular Access
As the field of infusion therapy continues to evolve and change, an infusion nurse must stay abreast of changes to support positive patient outcomes. With evidence-based practice guiding standards and policies and procedures for the specialty, nurses are in a position to take evidence to the practice setting. From selecting vascular access devices to assessing the performance of the infusion therapy team, this virtual program presents today's infusion nurse with evidence and best practices to monitor and manage patients, devices, and outcomes.
Virtual Conference: Infusion Therapy Grand Rounds: High-Risk Infusions
Over the last several decades, nurses have used grand rounds to share clinical expertise and best nursing practice to improve patient outcomes, and enhance patient experiences. The multi-faceted nature of infusion therapy provides the infusion nurse with unique opportunities and challenges with each patient, every day. This program will discuss practices for the delivery, maintenance, and completion of successful infusion therapy in challenging patient populations and healthcare environments.
