App for professional nurses launched at INS National Conference

With a view to set benchmarks in patient safety, Infusion Nurses Society (INS) organised its fifth National Conference in the city. This annual conference is led by eminent healthcare professionals and nursing leaders, focusing on developing and disseminating standards for infusion therapy practices to the healthcare fraternity at large.
This year the highlight of the conference was the launch of the ‘INS India Android app’ and the 2016 Infusion therapy standards by Dr KK Kalra. While congratulating the nursing fraternity, he acknowledged the good work, emphasising the fact that this would bring all nursing professionals on a uniform level of knowledge and skills.
This app will facilitate sharing of ideas, access to standards, and will give updates on advances in infusion therapy. The app would help INS reach out to its members as well as non-members in building an eco-system of infusion standards across India. It is also seen as a positive step under the central government’s ‘Health for All’ banner, as well as under the state government’s initiatives.
“We are happy to say that this forum is now in its fifth year. With the launch of the app, we are feeding into our theme for the year: Compliance to Infusion Standards: A Pathway to Patient Safety. It is also in keeping with the over-arching objective of the organisation of advocating for the public by advancing the specialty through evidence-based research and practice. It is with the commitment to integrity, inclusiveness, and innovation, that every year, we target best protocols and set milestones to achieve,” said Dr Col Binu Sharma, President, INS-India.
