Description

The course is primarily designed for diagnostic and therapeutic radiographers who administer intravenous substances including contrast agents as part of their work.  Other suitably qualified health care practitioners are also eligible.

This course is approved by the College of Radiographers.

The first day of the course will be an introductory session and welcome to the course via narrated PowerPoint which is supported by drop in sessions and email communication.  During this, we will introduce the method of delivery, talk you through all elements of the course and explain the assessment and portfolio to you. This is to be completed in your own time.

Following on from this, you will attend the university campus for 1 day to complete the teaching elements of the course. This will include participating in discussion groups, to consolidate what you have been learning from the remote resources, undertaking the practical IV cannulation training and completing a 1-hour exam in a computer room. Cannulation practice in your departments cannot commence until practical training and the written assessment have been successfully completed.  Guidance relating to social distancing and the use of PPE will be adhered to strictly.
