Online course on Infusion Therapy

Mumbai: Infusion Nurses Society (INS) -- a global authority in infusion therapy -- on Sunday launched India's first online course on Infusion Therapy for nurses, under which it aims to train over 3,000 nurses in the vital medical procedure.

Announcing the initiative, which will boost nurses even in rural parts of India, INS said that utilising the reach and ease of the digital platform, the course will enable members to access the various infusion therapy modules and presentations through its website. 

Infusion therapy means the administration of a drug intravenously, but the term also may refer to situations where drugs are provided through other non-oral routes, such as intramuscular injections and epidural routes.

Nine of ten patients admitted in hospitals receive infusion therapy during the course of their stay for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes. Improper infusion practices may lead to complications, causing an increase in mortality, morbidity, duration of hospital stay and healthcare costs.


"The thinking behind such initiatives is to engage healthcare professionals to intensify the best safety and quality practices in infusion management across the country," said President of INS India Binu Sharma during the launch.
