The Forum for Injection Technique wins prestigious infection prevention awards

The Forum for Injection Technique (FIT) has recently won two infection prevention awards.

They were awarded by the British Journal of Nursing Awards and the Kimberly-Clark HAI Watchdog Awards for their collaborative initiative ‘FIT4Safety – Injection Safety in UK and Ireland’, which includes the formulation and publication of the widely praised Safety of Sharps in Diabetes Recommendations (1st Edition). FIT4Safety and the recommendations were developed to protect healthcare workers and patients from the risks of diabetes related sharps injuries. The recommendations have played an important role in raising awareness and preparing the UK and Ireland for the Sharps Instruments in Healthcare Regulations 2013 that were incorporated into national law in May.
