Catheterisation Training

Overview

Catheterisation Training – Facilitated by registered nurses with first hand clinical experience, these blended learning courses allow participants to demonstrate theoretical and practical competencies within a classroom environment.Catheterisation

½ Day: Catheter care (all healthcare professionals)

½ Day: Urethral catheterisation including catheter care (Registered Healthcare Professionals)

Full Day:  Complete catheterisation training including suprapubic (Registered Healthcare Professionals)

Why Is It Important?

It is estimated in the UK there are at least 90,000 people with long term urinary catheters (using them for three months or more).

Catheterisation is a common procedure, yet it carries many risks including trauma, urinary tract infection, encrustation, urethral perforation, bladder calculi neoplastic changes, and those with spinal injuries there is the risk of autonomic dysreflexia.

About 1 in 5 people who stay in hospital are fitted with a catheter, sometimes just as a matter of routine rather than requirement. It should therefore be the therapy of choice only when all other interventions are deemed to be inappropriate or have been unsuccessful.
