Wrap Up of IPS 2014

Posted

23rd October 2014

Events and Exhibitions

Thanks to all our customers who came to visit our stand, I hope you found it as enjoyable and worthwhile as we did. The IPS exhibition committee did a great job of arranging the exhibit this year. All the events were well organised and fun, the venue was the ideal size and location. They even managed to get the sun to shine in October!   It was rewarding to see so many Trusts that we work closely with celebrating success at the annual IPS awards. We hope to have continual success with our industry leading aftercare support available to help IPCN teams realise their goals.   It was sad to see Julie Storr leave after 2 very successful years as president of IPS. Her speech asking us to contemplate the sufferers of HCAIs and then celebrate all the staff who work together to help eliminate them was particularly poignant. The new President Heather Loveday, fresh from her success at writing the Epic 3 guidelines, made an emotional speech and we wish her all the best for her tenure as president.   Over at the award winning GAMA Healthcare stand, we gave away some very popular smartphone portable batteries, delicious sweets, chocolates and, of course, the usual multi-coloured pens and bags.

Award Winners The activity at this years stand was our really quite difficult quiz app QuizMe. The tablet based quiz was played by four players who competed against each other to answer 12 multiple choice questions. The person who answered the most correct in the fastest time was the winner. The daily winner won a ASUS transformer tablet and the overall winner won £250 Amazon vouchers.   @FaizaHansraj remarked on twitter that it was the  “Most fun I’ve ever had at a conference exhibition”.   Congratulations to our QuizMe winners of IPS 2014: 1st place  Karen Hawker 2nd place Pat Cattini 3rd place  Marija Juraja We will be releasing a version to play at home and work so look out for announcements in future newsletters.
