Event description

Description

This training is for registered nurses who are based in health care organisations including hospitals, hospice, care and nursing homes who use the McKinley T34 in practice.

During the training you will:

  • Consider communication, Priorities for Care and care plans
  • Discuss the indications for using a syringe pump when working with palliative care patients
  • Gain practical knowledge of setting up of a syringe pump, site placement and equipment
  • Have an opportunity to practise using a syringe pump
  • Understand the different types of drugs used in syringe pumps for palliative patients
  • Explore how to safely monitor the syringe pump infusion
  • Consider potential problems that can occur when using syringe pumps

Competency needs to be demonstrated in a clinical setting. Nurses will need to be observed in their place of work by a person qualified to certify in that environment.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

If you are using Sat Nav please use the P&R postcode CB22 3AB as some sat navs do not currently recognise the location of the new hospice. A map with directions is available at http://www.arhc.org.uk/contact-us.asp

We regret there is no car parking at the Hospice for conference delegates or visitors to the Education & Conference Centre.

There are limited parking bays at the front of the hospice for visitors who are Blue Badge holders or for those with disabilities.

Car parking is available at the Babraham Road Park and Ride adjacent to the hospice. If you park near the entrance of the P&R you will be close to the footpath which takes you directly to the hospice. The walk is approx. 5-10 minutes. Car parking at the Park and Ride is FREE for up to 18 hours.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Contact the Education Team on 01223 675801 or education@arhc.org.uk

Refreshments are included and visitors are welcome to use the Bistro for lunch.

What's the refund policy?

If you cancel your registration 14 days prior to the start of the course, you will not be entitled to a refund, however you may transfer your booking to an alternative course. For non-attendees we reserve the right to charge a fee of £20.00, however extenuating circumstances will be taken into consideration when applying the cancellation fee.
