Cannulation in a Flash (-back)!


Ever wanted to draw blood from a cannula with the same finesse as your favourite glittering vampire or his doppelgänger intern on the wards? How about selecting the right type of needle, and learning the ins-and-outs of IV cannulation in a flash (-back)? This workshop has got you covered.

Whether you’re team Edward or team Jacob, most of us would concur that handling bloodwork on the wards is all about practice-practice-practice. In this session, you’ll be given an introduction to the procedural techniques required for cannulation, as well as a chance to hone your skills on practice arms. Learn from top proceduralists in the field who’ll guide you through the greatest veins. Pick up on tips and tricks from your fellow MDs. With the right sharps at your disposal, you’ll be shedding fewer blood, sweat and tears in no time!
