This programme provides participants with the skill and theory to perform phlebotomy in a competent and safe manner. 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. Guidance will be given on how to reassure the individual in relation to the procedure and on gaining their consent.
While this course will provide the necessary knowledge and skills to undertake phlebotomy, 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 and hold an up to date Hand Hygiene Training certificate (within the last 2 years).
