A new edition of Dripline is out!

The May-July 2017 edition of our newsletter, Dripline, is out now and available here or from our Dripline page.

This issue is packed with a variety of reading: Justine at work, nursing, whilst infusing with PN; members’ comments about experiences in hospital and trying to access the Australian NDIS; latest research on preventing the formation of biofilm; PNDU in Perth for the AVAS Conference and Brisbane for the AuSPEN Consumer Workshop; find out how to obtain a copy of PNDU’s new toilet card; members join our AGM and become involved in PNDU’s annual awards; begin thinking about HPN Awareness Week and how you can join it; and much more besides.
