Venepuncture and Cannulation Training Session
The aim of the Venepuncture and Cannulation Training Session is to develop knowledge and understanding of the underpinning theory for the skill of venepuncture and peripheral intravenous cannulation (PIC). It gives delegates who already operate in a healthcare setting, the opportunity for supervised practice in a safe learning environment.
The Venepuncture and Cannulation Training day provides underpinning theory and opportunity for safe practice of the skills. However, please note that attendees will not be competent after this day alone.
Please register interest below and we will keep you updated
To become competent, attendees must be aware of their own organisation’s policy and practice in relation to venepuncture and cannulation. They must be able to ensure that their employing organisation will be able to provide supervision following this study day, to ensure they develop safe and competent practice before these skills can be performed unsupervised.
To attend the Venepuncture and Cannulation Training Session you must have a health care background
