Injection Administration Training

overview

Injection Administration 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 provide a broad understanding of injection techniques and routes and common injectable medication (excludes intravenous administration).

why is it important?

injection administration

This course allows attendees to review current best practice and technique associated with injectable medication.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC, 2015) require practitioners to maintain an appropriate level of competence in their skills. The National Patient Safety Agency has supported this view, stating that all practitioners involved in administering injectable medicines must have the appropriate knowledge, skills and attitude to prepare and administer the prescribed medication.

Unsafe injection practices can have a significant impact on patient outcomes such as nerve damage, abscesses and pain, resulting in potential litigation.
