Safety going digital is a project organized by "The European Dialysis and Transplant Nurses Association/European Renal Care Association" (EDTNA/ERCA) and sponsored by Redsense Medical AB Sweden. The project objectives are:
- Optimizing patient safety during treatment
- Increasing staff and patient awareness of "Venous Needle Dislodgement" (VND) and its consequences
- Facilitate accessible tools for minimizing the risks of VND and to determine patients at risk
As part of this project, the VND App was created in cooperation with the EDTNA/ERCA. Between 17-20 September, Redsense Medical attended the EDTNA/ERCA 2016 Conference in Valencia Spain; where the VND App was launched.
The VND App is available for download on the Redsense website and serves as an educational tool for venous needle dislodgement. It collects information regarding who is a VND risk patient, how to reduce risk of VND, training instructions, and so on. The app features a healthcare professional and a patient module, each with its specific educational information.
