Description

T34 Syringe Driver, Subcutaneous Infusions in Palliative Care and Medicines Management

Our study day combines the theory and practical applications across all three areas. You will be provided with all learning materials, certificates and goodie bag.

Subcutaneous infusions are now widely used in a variety of therapy areas for treatment, symptom control, including hypodermoclysis (hydration).

Medicines Management is a fundamental part of a registered nurses’ role and can be defined as a system of processes and behaviours that determine how medicines are used. Patients depend on medication to help maintain health, prevent illness, manage chronic conditions and treat disease.

Our courses will be delivered by qualified, experienced nurse educators. The study day has been awarded the Skills for Health ‘Quality Mark’ and certified by the CPD Certification Service. The T34 workshop is accredited by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN).

Course duration: 6 hours

CPD Points: 6 Hours
