Basic IV Skills Workshop: Insertion and Technique

Description

This 3-hour IV skills course is designed to provide all nurses and learners interested in improving their IV skills with a basic knowledge of IV therapy practice. Using task trainers in our state-of-the-art Simulation Center, attendees will learn successful and skillful techniques needed to properly insert an intravenous catheter and how to minimize patient discomfort and complication rates. This will result in a boosting of confidence and increase of first stick success rates.

The course has a one hour didactic portion that covers current standards of practice, legal aspects related to IV therapy, equipment required, identifying the patient, selecting the site, hand hygiene, and complications. This program features an expert speaker on IV therapy and requires passing a pre- and post-test. Once you have passed the post-test you will be provided two hours of "hands-on" time to practice on manikins and then perform a return demonstration to an instructor to be successfully checked off.
