Urethral Catheterisation & Catheter Care

Catheterisation Training | Catheter Care Training

Urethral catheterisation training for nurses plus adapted courses

Our qualified educators deliver catheterisation training based on their real-life experiences of administering the procedure to patients. While this course focuses on training for registered nurses, we offer a range of catheterisation and care modules in order to cater for each organisation’s individual requirements, including:

  • Urethral catheterisation training for nurses
  • Suprapubic catheterisation training
  • Catheter care training for non-registered nursing staff

Whether dealing with a patient with an intermittent, indwelling or suprapubic catheter, their comfort and care is of the upmost priority. This delicate and sensitive procedure must be carried out professionally and carefully to ensure safety and hygiene.
