About this course

Urinary catheterisation is a medical procedure used to drain and collect urine from the bladder and is a key aspect of nursing care. We are regularly asked to provide a course for this. As such, we have devised various catheterisation courses which will help familiarise delegates with core elements of each, the reasons for catheterisation, as well providing a safe environment for practical sessions.

This training session will cover all theoretical elements such as risks of infection, anatomy, procedures and record-keeping as well as all practical elements relating to male catheterisation. Attendees will have the opportunity to practice their skills with a male simulated model.

The session will be conducted by one of our expert clinical trainers, who is a nurse with an abundance of clinical and complex care experience and knowledge. Learners will be observed and evaluated throughout the day.

This clinical course follows the quality standards on urinary catheters, produced by The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the catheter care guidelines for nurses produced by The Royal College of Nursing to ensure healthcare professionals provide a high standard of care to patients.

We will provide all the required equipment to conduct the training at our premises. Do not hesitate to contact us to discuss how we can tailor the course to your exact needs.
