The focus of this half day 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 cannula aftercare.
Who is it for?
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 in the practice setting.
This course runs over one half day.
On completion of this workshop applicants will receive a certificate of attendance offering 5 CPD hours.
