What's covered on the day?

This course is aimed at experienced Nurses and Health Care Assistants who will be working in a clinical capacity and will be delegated ear irrigation after assessment of the patient. The course is designed to ensure those Nurses and Health Care Assistants who are expected to irrigate, are able to do so confidently and safely. It provides knowledge and practical guidance which, together with mentorship, should enable Nurses and Health Care Assistants to fulfil this extended role.


As this is a theoretical course a knowledge assessment will be carried out. The tutor will be actively monitoring and reviewing the learner’s contributions and understanding and the learners will demonstrate this through the completed knowledge assessment during the day.

A practical session will be undertaken so that competencies can be maintained in the work situation.
