Due to the on-going increase in NHS work and following government advice the NIVAS board has decided to postpone our national conference.

The new dates for the conference are Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th November, the venue remains the same.


This years NIVAS conference will be focusing on patient safety. Keeping the patient safe during IV therapy and when they have a vascular access device in situ is a top priority in reducing risks and complications.
