This workshop is designed to help registered nurses develop the essential knowledge and skills to competently set up and manage a McKinley syringe driver. This is a theory and practical based session. As well as outlining the drugs used in continuous subcutaneous infusions, including compatible and unsuitable drug combinations, the workshop also addresses the administration and monitoring of a subcutaneous infusion, including calculation of the rate setting for safe delivery of medication. 

This workshop is combined with repeated, supervised safe practice in the delegate’s working environment or at our Hospice placement days. Following the theoretical training, each delegate will be required to complete an assessment within their organisation to ensure full competency.
