AIM

To deliver the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to obtain blood samples from patients for further investigation

OBJECTIVES

  • Review of the anatomy of the arm.
  • Discuss infection control and health and safety.
  • Outline reasons for and complications of this invasive procedure.
  • Identify accurate vein selection and demonstration of correct technique, choice of equipment and procedure.
  • Legal and professional responsibilities.
  • Practical skills technique workshop – clinical skills manikin and human arm.

Please note: We provide a logbook so each delegate can go away after the course and gain full competency under clinical supervision (the recommended amount is 20 hours, but this is entirely up to the individual). Please note that each delegate is responsible for sourcing their own clinical setting for supervision and to be signed off as fully competent.

 

At the end of the course delegates should be able to:

  • Understand anatomy and physiology and correct vein selection.
  • Identify and describe equipment used for routine blood withdrawals.
  • Describe and utilize the required steps to perform routine blood withdrawal.
  • Describe actions that ensure safety and understand relevant professional and legal issues.
  • Identify suitable vein selection and identify factors influencing this.
  • Practice safely in terms of infection control and waste management.
  • Recognise any complications arising and be able to take the appropriate action.

Part 1

This course includes 1-day pre-course self-directed study. Delegates will receive pre-course materials to ensure that they have adequate baseline knowledge before attending the second part of the course. The pre course materials will include medical terminology, anatomy and physiology and safety standards of working as a phlebotomist.

Please note: Pre-course materials will be sent to delegates via the Course Instructions Email.

Part 2

The 2nd part of the course includes 1-day face to face theory and dry laboratory experience. This part of the course is delivered by our experienced trainers, who will cover all the essential theoretical knowledge in basic phlebotomy and realistically simulate the phlebotomy procedure. Allowing you to develop and utilise your practical skills by drawing ‘dry’ blood from simulation manikins. You will learn both blood collection systems I.e. Vacutainer-Tubes & the Sarstedt S-Monovette system.

Delegates are expected to successfully meet the required outcomes and reach at least a 75% pass rate on a final MCQ at the end of Day 2.
On completion of the course candidates will receive an accredited certificate of attendance and not that of competence.

Delegates are encouraged to obtain supervised practice within their own area of work to become competent in the procedure (a minimum of 20 hours practice is recommended). A competence training pack will be provided to use in candidates own area of work, where it is recommended that candidates are supervised by a suitable competent practitioner.
