Why is it important?

Increasing numbers of patients are requiring IV medication via a peripheral intravenous cannula. It is vital healthcare professionals have the appropriate skills and knowledge to undertake this practice.


In order to perform cannulation appropriately the practitioner must demonstrate a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology, correct device selection, potential complications and associated regulation. Undertaking this course allows attendees to develop their understanding and practice safely and effectively.
