Our Annual Infusion Skills Training has been updated for 2019.
We provide training for pediatric and adult patients and their caregivers/significant others. New this year, we are extending the invitation to extended family members. Many members have shared they would like the option to attend for the training day only. We are excited to announce our new Saturday Only format. Members who select this option will join programming Saturday at 9a, have access to all education sessions, lunch, and be scheduled for exclusive infusion training.
Infusion Training is for anyone who desires the independence of being able to self-infuse or infuse at home. Participants will range from youngsters just exploring self infusion, to teens and adults who need a refresher, to caregivers, spouses, and extended family members who want to be ready to infuse should the need arise. All skill and comfort levels are encouraged to attend. For those not quite ready for a self stick, Bayer has generously provided Bay Cuffs to practice with.
This year's training feature a one day model - the full day of programming Saturday will feature your own exclusive infusion training with a nurse/phelbotomist. To complement your infusion training, we have developed a schedule of education programming that will bolster your confidence and preparation to live your life with independence and purpose.
