Welcome to IPS IV Forum 2024. 

After the excellent success of the IV Forum Conference in 2023, the Infection Prevention Society (IPS) IV Forum are delighted to be hosting its 12th Annual one day conference - IV Access: Strategies for Success to be held on Wednesday 4th December at the Birmingham Conference Centre.

Vascular Access Devices are an acknowledged, therapeutic part of modern healthcare provision, however they are not without an extensive range of risk. Our one-day conference is an opportunity to share current strategies and guidelines to reduce these risks. It also aims to provide an update on the various projects in which the Infection Prevention Society are involved.

This day is aimed at infection prevention and control practitioners, IV nurse specialists, vascular access teams, OPAT teams, critical care nurses, microbiologists, anaesthetists and anyone with an interest in vascular access and current infection prevention practices related to vascular access.
