Reducing Preventable Sharps Injuries in Healthcare

Program Objectives:

/ Discuss at least two facts that reflect the current state of HIV, HBV and HCV infection in the general population.

/ Identify two risk behaviors associated with bloodborne pathogen infection.

/ Describe at least two factors that can contribute to incidence and prevention of sharps injuries among healthcare workers.


Karen Daley, PhD, RN, FAAN, served from 2010 to 2014 as the president of the American Nurses Association. She is a past president of ANA Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Center for Nursing and has served on the boards of ANA, the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and the ANA-PAC. She is a current member of the Board of Trustees of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, the American Nurses Foundation and the Barnstable Land Trust. She has been appointed an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Case Western Reserve University.

A resident of Cotuit, MA, Daley spent more than 25 years in clinical practice at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. She has been honored for her outstanding leadership and excellence in practice, including being recognized as a living nurse legend by the Massachusetts Association of Registered Nurses. In addition, she was inducted as a Fellow into the American Academy of Nursing in recognition of her advocacy work in sharps injury prevention.

Good Practice in Biobanking: A Labware Manufacturer´s Perspective

More than ever we see an increasing demand for high-quality and high-throughput libraries of biological and chemical specimens. Reasons for this trend are diverse and range from ground-breaking developments in personalised medicine over new trends in compound screening to the enormously high throughput of patient samples in COVID-19 testing.
Learn about:

  • Good practices in sample storage and their link to labware
  • Types of storage containers and their intended applications
  • Options for sample tracking – how to utilise them optimally
  • Pre-requisites and prospects of process automation
  • Quality certificates for labware

Magnetic 3D Cell Culture: Tools to bridge the gap between 2D and 3D

The growing push for 3D cell culture models is limited by technical challenges in handling, processing, and scalability to high-throughput applications. To meet these challenges, Greiner Bio-One offers an innovative technology called  magnetic 3D bioprinting, in which cells are individually magnetized and assembled with magnetic forces without changing the phenotype or the physiology of these cells. Magnetization of cells not only makes routine cell culture and experiments feasible and scalable, but also enables scientist to have fine spatial control in the formation of spheroids or more complex structures.

This presentation will focus on recent developments using magnetic 3D bioprinting, particularly in cancer biology and immunology. Specifically, it will demonstrate a method for phenotypic profiling of cell types within spheroids using real-time high-throughput imaging.


Learning objectives:

  • General technique of magnetic 3D cell culture and magnetic 3D bioprinting
  • Key advantages of 3D cell culture over other techniques
  • Broad applications of 3D cell culture
  • Applications in immunobiology
  • Comparison between magnetic 3D cell culture and in vivo results in collaboration with MD Anderson Cancer Center

Quality Samples when a Vascular Devices is Involved

Program Objectives:

  1. to identify various types of VADs used in the acute care space
  2. to discuss the Infusion Nurses Society and CLSI standards for blood collection from VADs
  3. to describe the process for collecting blood from an IV line as well as collection from the arm with an IV
  4. to identify ways that phlebotomists and nurses can work together to ensure optimal blood specimen collection is achieved


About the Presenter: 

Jennifer Connor-Smith MSN, RN, CNML is the Director of Clinical Operations at The University of Chicago where she is responsible for the daily operations for all activities relating to patient centered care in the Student Health Clinic. She is also responsible for the direct supervision of all nursing, lab, clerical staff, administrative staff and front line leaders. In addition to her position at The University of Chicago, she is also in her 8th year as an Adjunct Faculty Member at Moraine Valley Community College where she teaches an NAACLS accredited phlebotomy course and serves as a member of the Phlebotomy Program Advisory Council.
