Course Summary

This course is aimed at clinically trained people who require hands-on refresher training in intravenous (IV) or intraosseous (IO) access.  This is not an accredited program, simply a course providing up-to-date information about techniques and equipment used in pre-hospital emergency and inpatient care.

The typical student will be a doctor, nurse or paramedic who has been out of the industry for some time or has been working within the industry but away from direct inpatient contact.
