This course is valuable for healthcare professionals interested in obtaining or refreshing foundational intravenous (IV) insertion skills for clinical applications. Skills gained in this workshop will allow you to describe the basic process of IV insertion, explain possible complications, and begin an IV.
Within the province of Alberta, intravenous insertion is a restricted practice. Only students from a regulated health profession that are authorized to perform IV's are eligible to enroll in and attend this IV Certification course.
Please note: students in this course must be willing to serve as a patient for other students in the hands-on component. A minimum of three live IV starts per student will be performed to successfully complete this course.
