What’s covered on the day?

This course is aimed at Registered Nurses who have experience of using a McKinley T34 Syringe Driver already, but are requiring a refresher on the knowledge and skills associated with caring for an individual who requires this for symptom management. There is a full day version of this course available for new practitioners who have not used syringe drivers before, this will allow the learners to gain all of the required knowledge relating to medication compatibility, the legal and professional considerations around using Syringe Drivers, as well as practical experience of setting up and using a McKinley T34 Syringe Driver.


Learners on both courses will complete a knowledge assessment at the end of each course, allowing them to evidence their understanding and continuing professional development. Learners attending the half day course will leave with a competency document for completion in the workplace. Learners who are booked onto the full day course will have a simulated assessment using the competency document after their practical session. They can then return to their workplace with the second part of this for assessment and competency sign off after further exposure to the clinical skill.
