The Intravenous Therapy Updates course is designed to provide nurses with the latest information and skills related to infusion therapy. The three-day course gives participants 24 continuing education units, which may be applied for renewal of ANSAP IV Therapy Cards. Since 2004, the course has seen a total of 25,754 students taught over 362 courses.

Under the renewed MOA spanning March 17, 2016 to 2019, the Intravenous Therapy Updates courses are to continue being offered in Aesculap Academy, in coordination with ANSAP, utilizing qualified lecturers and trainers as designated by ANSAP’s board of directors.

Representing BMSPH during the MOA signing in the Manila Hotel were Managing Director Lih Chyun Yeong and Aesculap Academy Manager Ma. Cecilia Victoria Cannon, with ANSAP representatives President Maria Linda Buhat and ANSAP Healthcare Institute Director Elsa Castro.

Aesculap Academy is an independent division of B. Braun Medical Supplies, Inc., involved in providing continuing education to healthcare practitioners through partnerships with strategic medical and allied societies.
