CATHETERISATION & CATHETER CARE
The catheterisation course is for registered nurses needing to carry out urethral catheterisation of patients. After successful completion of the course, five mentored practices will be required within a clinical setting. The catheter care course is for care staff.
During the catheterisation course participating delegates will receive both theoretical and practical instruction using anatomically correct manikins. This allows confidence to be gained before conducting the procedure with patients.
