Description

This course provides the nurse and midwife with the skill, theory and practice of phlebotomy. It will cover topics such as sites used for phlebotomy, criteria for evaluating a vein, principles of an aseptic technique as well as complications that may arise during and after the procedure.  
 
This course will provide the necessary knowledge and skills to undertake phlebotomy; however, it will be necessary for each nurse and midwife attending to ensure that they abide by their local policy on phlebotomy in their place of work.
