This course is designed to build on the knowledge and skills learned in Syringe Driver Part 1: Introduction. You will refresh and demonstrate your knowledge of drug conversions, and prepare and maintain a McKinley T34 pump for use on lifelike models. Everyone will receive an individual classroom-based competency assessment at the end of the session, based on real-life patient scenarios. To be deemed competent, you will be expected to demonstrate: practical skills in setting up CSCI; knowledge of where to source medication advice; sound clinical and pharmaceutical knowledge; understanding of the NMC requirements for medicines management, and PRN dosage; awareness of the need to monitor patients’ symptoms; be able to recognise an illegal prescription and what to do about it.
Who is this course for?
Registered nurses and doctors from all clinical settings who have either completed Syringe Driver Part 1 but have yet to be assessed as competent in the workplace, or require revalidation of existing competency.
