Intravenous Injection for Radiographers

This course is aimed at registered / practising radiographers who wish to develop skills in intravenous injection. This course is designed to enable practitioners to gain accreditation for intravenous injection skills and to be able to practice safely within a written scheme of work.

The course addresses the key theoretical components essential to the administering of intravenous injections and practical sessions under the supervision of an experienced trainer and is delivered over a six month period with an initial one day of contact at the university. This is then followed by clinical practice within the radiographers’ department whereby practical requirements are undertaken. Here they will complete a clinical log book under the supervision of a named mentor/supervisor. The written examination and completion of the clinical log book must be completed within the six month period. 

The course is available to all practising radiographers (both diagnostic and therapeutic) who are HCPC registered. Applicants are required submit evidence of approval for clinical practice and supervision from their line manager/clinical director and a named supervisor at application.  

This course is designed to enable practitioners to gain accreditation for intravenous injection skills and to be able to practice safely within a written scheme of work. The course addresses the key theoretical components essential to the administering of intravenous injections and practical sessions under the supervision of an experienced trainer.
