Product Details

Venepuncture and Cannulation – A Practical Guide offers an easy-to-read, comprehensive account of the practical procedures of venepuncture and intravenous cannulation. It provides the underlying theory and underpinning knowledge required, as well as a step-by-step approach that will enable healthcare practitioners to carry out these procedures safely, efficiently and with confidence.

 

This book is intended as a supplementary resource for those involved in practising or teaching these procedures, for healthcare practitioners wishing to update their knowledge, and for novice practitioners learning these skills for the first time. Each chapter contains intended learning outcomes and points for practice. Some chapters also include helpful illustrations and practical activities, and the book ends with two self-assessment checklists.

 

This second edition has been thoroughly updated and includes a very useful ‘Test yourself’ chapter at the end of the book. Readers can now test their knowledge by answering the relevant questions. They can also identify any gaps in their current level of knowledge or skill, as well as further learning opportunities that may be required to support their practice.
