The ART Committee are busy drawing up plans for this year's conference and want to build on the success of 2022 which saw the return of conference after and enforced break due to the pandemic.
We are busy looking for topics and presenters and would very much like to hear from you on this. Do you have any topics that you feel should be on the programme and do you have any suggested speakers? You may want to present yourself and if so we would very much like to hear from you.
I'm so glad to hear that it is going ahead again.
Are we committed to the same venue or are you looking at alternatives in another part of the country ?
I think that a topic of Home Haemodialysis installations with a group of say 4-5 speakers with say 10-15 minutes each and then a Q&A giving an overview of how they do it might help new technicians without prior experience decide on their format.
We have topics/workshops ranging from; a unit looking at their water treatment, designing a renal unit, cleaning of machines inside and out, update on ART Training and Education Scheme and dry surface biofilms.
In addition and subject to final confirmation other topics may include; management of sodium and potassium interaction and blood borne virus myth busting.
Any of course let's not forget my exciting annual report at AGM.
We certainly need to engage with ARI to seek nomination of a suitable replacement onto ART Committee. We also still open to an Industry Rep not associated with ARI as there was always provision for two Industry Reps (ARI and non-ARI) to be nominated.
ART National Conference 2023 is now almost fully booked. 85 places booked so far, there literally are only a handful of places remaining so please contact Peter Jones is you would like to book one of the last few remaining places.
