What's covered on the day?

This session will give learners the opportunity to refresh their knowledge on correct techniques for administering Intramuscular and Subcutaneous Injections, the key features for administering, and safety factors for consideration whilst administering injections to service users.It will also allow the learners to practice within a simulated learning setting, for both types of injection.


The assessment for this course will be through continual assessment and practice observation. There is no formal summative assessment required, as it is considered a refresher course and learners should have already been assessed as competent during their pre-registration training.
