DiTP Venous Access Workshop

Price $130 AUD + BF + GST Register

Event description

Please arrive at 8:30am for registration and networking. The workshop will commence promptly at 9:00am.

DiTP is designed for junior doctors, international medical graduates and trainees.

This hands-on workshop explores the underpinning theory and techniques of venous access and cannulation, including ultrasound-guided peripheral venous cannulation. From here, participants will practise their skills on simulated training arms and using the ultrasound machine.

A pre-learning pack will be provided covering foundational knowledge on the venous system, vein selection, device selection, and best practice for venous access and cannulation. This theory will be reviewed at the start of the workshop before participants breakup into groups for the practical skills training.

Due to the small group practical training, this workshop is strictly limited to 21 participants only. 

A networking morning tea is provided.
