Thank you to all those who attended the recent NIVAS Study Day 2018 on Wednesday 3rd October 2018 at the Hilton London Olympia. Speaker presentations and photos are now available on the members section of the website.

Look out for more information on future study days.

A message from The Chair

Dear NIVAS members

Happy New Year and welcome to 2019. If you attended our last study day in London on the 3rd of October 2018, you will have attended our annual general meeting. At the meeting we voted on converting the NIVAS newsletter into an electronic form and as such you will have noticed that you have not received a newsletter over the festive period. The newsletter will now be posted electronically onto the new NIVAS website.

2019 will hopefully be quite exciting as we will be hosting our national conference over 2 days in Manchester on 12 and 13 June 2019. We will also be facilitating another study day later in the year.

You should have all received an email this week from NIVAS advertising the NIVAS election, we have one board vacancy. This board member will be responsible for communication by way of an electronic newsletter four times a year. The other duties a board member gets involved with include facilitating and delivering education at the study days and conference, answering members questions, being part of the NIVAS board decision-making process and interacting with national agencies and organisations involved with NIVAS. You will also have an opportunity to comment on national guidelines and future innovations in the field of intravenous therapy and vascular access. As a board member you don’t get paid, however, NIVAS cover your travel expenses and you won’t have to pay for your membership. For more information, please feel free to contact the NIVAS board via the secretariat.

Finally, if you would like to write any articles for the website of the e-newsletter please do so and send them to me via the NIVAS email. You can also keep in touch with us using our twitter @NIVAS_Tweets.

Yours sincerely

Andrew Barton
NIVAS Chair
