Description

Join us as we take a look at the Secret Life of Catheters. Despite being the most commonly used indwelling medical device worldwide, confidence surrounding the humble Foley catheter remains low. Through eleven animated and modular videos we'll share the 8 Golden Rules of Catheter Care. We debunk myths and chase away fear empowering you to make most common catheter related problems a thing of the past. Learn about the living biofilm, delve deep into the post-obstructive diuresis and visit 19th Century Paris as we discover the origins of Joseph Charrière's mysterious measuring system! Take a dip into the study of latex and material science and learn why not giving antibiotics might be the best thing you can do for your patient.

The National Catheter Project was devised by Consultant Urologist Mr Bill Dunsmuir. Joined by Paramedic Charlie Adler, together they have embarked on a mission to shine a light on one of the least well understood areas of common clinical practice, and in doing so they are tearing down the walls between professions that create misery for our patients.

All are welcome! This course is for everyone involved in the care of people with catheters. We've taught carers, nurses, health care assistants, paramedics, physiotherapists, doctors, surgeons and more. The easy accessibility of the content allows everyone, regardless of experience, to benefit in a way which will improve the care they can give.

But we're learning too: learning from each and every one of you as you share your perspective on the barriers to the care that you want to give. Together, we can and will drive forward real and tangible change.

The sessions are fun, interactive and feature direct input from the Urology Team at St Peter's Hospital. Lunch provided.
