Urethral Catheterisation Catheter Care

Course Description

This course is for Registered Nurses needing to carry out Urethral Catheterisation of service users.

During the course participating delegates will receive both theoretical and practical training using anatomically correct manikins. This allows confidence to be gained before conducting the procedure with service users.

Delegates will have to ensure that they complete a course workbook and competency check within their own workplace, alongside a Doctor or Nurse who is already competent at Urethral Catheterisation prior to being certified by an employer as competent.
