Ultrasound Guided Peripheral Venous Access
Never miss an intravenous drip again after you have completed this course! After completing this self-directed online course you will be able to perform ultrasound guided peripheral venous cannulation, increasing the success rate of IV cannulation as well as reducing the time taken.
Students also get the opportunity to practice their skills on a simulator at our facilities at the University of Melbourne Ultrasound Simulation Centre between 9 am - 5 pm Mondays to Fridays.
The course is delivered in two components:
- Online Course Tutorials
Tutorial 1: How to perform ultrasound-guided peripheral venous access
Tutorial 2: Performing the Simulator Case Studies
Tutorial 3: Completing the course and the next steps
- Simulator practice. A blue gel block and human arm simulators and ultrasound machines are available to complete the required practice (20 successful cannulations)
Suitable for all health care workers who perform peripheral intravenous cannulation, PICC line insertion or venous blood sampling (phlebotomy). For example doctors, nurses, medical and nursing students, paramedics, phlebotomist (pathology services).
