Our Catheterisation training course is designed for staff wanting to update both their theory and practical skills in catheterisation.

Urinary catheterisation is a medical procedure used to drain and collect urine from the bladder. By the end of the Catheterisation training course attendees will be familiar with reasons for catheterisation, the equipment selection and the processes involved with male, female and supra pubic catheterisation.

Please note: A competency framework is included in this training. Competency is achieved in the workplace following the training. Each procedure needs to be signed off by a qualified, senior member of staff. Theory certificates will be issued initially, once completed competency forms are returned to us (within six months of training) a competency certificate can then be issued.

I think that the thorough anatomy and physiology given at the beginning of the course was priceless.
