Our Catheterisation training course is designed for all RGNs, enrolled nurses & qualified staff who may have not conducted catheterisation before or require a refresher to update their skill set.

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. The completed document can then be used to identify the individuals’ competence.
