Why is it important?

Venepuncture is a common procedure in healthcare, but it is crucial that it is performed correctly to avoid potential complications such as haematoma, pain, and bruising for the patient. Practitioners are expected to use evidence-based practice to obtain blood samples efficiently and without causing any discomfort to the patient. If the sample is not collected correctly, it may not yield a valid test result, which can have serious consequences for patient care. 

Therefore, it is essential for healthcare professionals to receive comprehensive training in venepuncture, including theoretical knowledge, practical skills, and patient-centred communication, to ensure that they can perform this critical procedure confidently and safely, while minimising patient discomfort and anxiety.
