Where is it?Hospice in The Weald
This session covers anatomy and physiology of the urinary tract in both men and women, clinical indications for catheterisation, policies and guidelines, and demonstrations of the procedure on male and female anatomical models. Suprapubic catheters are also covered, and everyone will have chance to practise their technique on a range of lifelike models. Up to 40% of all healthcare associated infections (HCAI) are related to urinary catheters, and 90-100% of patients with long-term catheters will develop a catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI), so infection control is key and forms an important part of the course.
Who is this course for?
Registered nurses from all clinical settings.
The full cost will be charged for cancellations with less than two week’s notice.
