Course/Event Description

This course is aimed at doctors and other healthcare practitioners who wish to expand their knowledge and skills related to vascular access. Courses run three times a year on a Wednesday afternoon from 1300 to 1700.

Recently we have invested in some new ultrasound phantoms to aid teaching of peripheral and central vascular access.

Areas covered on the course include:

  • e-learning resources on the basic principles of ultrasound and indications, complications and management of vascular access.
  • Practical demonstrations and practice in small groups of peripheral and central vascular access.
  • Troubleshooting, personal practice and videos.

Places on the course are limited to 20 and the course fee is £40 for nurses, radiographers and AHPs, £60 for trainee doctors and £80 for consultants.
