Cannulation Training



Cannulation Training – 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.

In order to perform cannulation appropriately the practitioner must demonstrate a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology, correct device selection, potential complications and associated regulation. Undertaking this course allows attendees to develop their understanding and practice safely and effectively.
