Venepuncture Workshop




4 Hours

About the Course

This course is aimed at all healthcare practitioners who would perform this skill in their practice setting. Although this workshop offers many opportunities to practice competency, sign-off can only be achieved in practice. Therefore, applicants will need to ensure they have opportunities for supervised practice and assessment when returning to the practice setting. The focus of this half day course is for participants to gain a theoretical understanding of intravenous cannulation and to provide an opportunity for simulated practice. This course explores the legal and profession aspects that need to be considered when performing cannulation.

The workshop includes ANTT, vein selection and rational, correct application of a tourniquet and site aftercare.
