Phlebotomy and cannulation

This Phlebotomy & Peripheral Intravenous Cannulation Learning Package covers preparation for Registered Nurses, Midwives and Enrolled Nurses, who are required to obtain competency in peripheral venipuncture and/or peripheral intravenous cannulation (PIVC).

The aim of this package is to educate health professionals in the theoretical and clinical skills required to perform safe and effective peripheral venipuncture and peripheral intravenous cannulation (PIVC) in accordance with procedures, relevant state and national guidelines and within their own scope of practice.

The process of RPL can be applied to acknowledge prior skills and knowledge
