Vascular Access: Venipuncture and IV Cannulation

No one appreciates a healthcare professional skilled in venipuncture or IV cannulation more than the patient.  It is a skill which is required frequently in hospitalized patients for a variety of clinical indications, and while obtaining vascular access is generally a safe procedure, it is not without complications.  Sometimes these complications are life threatening.

UniTeam have developed this course to provide healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills required to professionally and competently access the most appropriate vein for the purposes of venipuncture or IV cannulation.  The course is tailored to healthcare professionals who are required to manage patients receiving IV therapy and who require the knowledge and skills to undertake venipuncture and the placement of peripheral cannulation.

Participants will learn the foundations for selecting appropriate equipment and to access veins with confidence. This competency-based course focuses on essential theory as well as a practical approach to facilitate skill application.

Central venous access devices or CVADs, is a broad term that includes many types of catheters that are inserted into and positioned within a vein in the body to deliver therapies to the bloodstream.  CVADs will vary, depending on the different conditions and therapies being applied.
