Ear care and ear irrigation training course

Our ear irrigation training course covers the safe use of ear irrigation equipment and many other aspects of general ear care. Giving healthcare workers and registered nurses all the skills and knowledge required to support patient and service-users’ ear health.


The ear care training we provide is always delivered by medical experts who have vast on-the-job experience in ear irrigation, ear problem identification and all subjects covered during the course. Upon completion, attendees will have improved awareness of the possible issues patients may face with their ear health, and the confidence to treat general problems or refer for more specialist intervention where necessary.


Implementing your ear care training in the workplace can ease patient discomfort, help to mitigate the risk of an escalating problem and help to ease the pressure on organisational resources, such as GP consultations and prescription costs.
