Course Outline

This comprehensive Catheter Care training course provides health and social care professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to deliver safe, effective, and compassionate care to patients requiring catheterisation.

Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the reasons for catheterisation, including common medical conditions and situations where catheters are indicated.  During this catheter care training course, attendees will also learn to recognise and manage potential complications, such as infections or blockages, ensuring patient comfort and well-being.

Catheter care practical sessions will focus on hands-on skills.  These include obtaining urine specimens from catheterised patients, safely removing catheters, changing drainage bags with aseptic technique, and attaching overnight drainage bags.

Through interactive learning experiences, participants will develop the confidence to perform these procedures competently while maintaining patient dignity and promoting infection control practices.

By the end of this course, healthcare professionals will be equipped with the knowledge, skills, and understanding necessary to provide person-centred catheter care, meeting the diverse needs of patients while ensuring their safety and comfort.  Please note that competency assessment by a qualified person within your service is required before any attendee on this course provides catheter care unsupervised.
