Documentation. RCN, London, UK.

Welcome to the fourth edition of the RCN’s Standards
for Infusion Therapy, sections of which have been
updated to reflect changes in the delivery or
commissioning of care since this guidance was last
published in 2010.
This edition features a dedicated section on patient
safety and quality (Section 2) and one on patient
experiences and infusion therapy. There is also a new
section on service development (Section 10), reflecting
the role of commissioning in IV therapy and the
continued development of outpatient/home parenteral
antimicrobial therapy (OPHAT) services.
Certain specialist areas are now considered beyond the
scope of this document; for example specific infusion
devices such as the ‘Ommaya reservoir’ and apheresis
(see Section 8.9 of this publication). Where available or
appropriate, the reader is signposted to local policies/
guidelines and/or websites for further information.
