Cannulation – Facilitated by registered nurses with first hand clinical experience, this ½ day blended learning course allows participants to demonstrate theoretical and practical competencies within a classroom environment.
This training course is intended to cover all aspects of safe peripheral intravenous cannulation and subsequent care. Learners will have the opportunity to practice cannulation skills on a model under supervision of our clinical training team.
Why Is It Important?
Increasing numbers of patients are requiring IV medication via a peripheral intravenous cannula. It is vital healthcare professionals have the appropriate skills and knowledge to undertake this practice.
