Venepuncture and Peripheral Intravenous Cannulation
Mater Education’s combined venepuncture and peripheral intravenous cannulation course delivers the knowledge and skills needed to perform venepuncture and cannulation procedures with safety and efficiency.
Taught in Mater Education’s world-class simulation facilities, under the guidance of our team of interprofessional education experts, the course takes participants through a series of workshops and simulations that help consolidate learnings with real-life application. Key areas of study and skills development include:
- anatomy and physiology of vessels
- venepuncture and cannulation equipment
- venepuncture and cannulation procedures
- different venepuncture techniques
- order of the draw
- management of complications.
Who should attend?
Our Venepuncture and Cannulation workshop is designed for health professionals and clinicians who perform venepuncture and cannulation procedures. This includes registered and enrolled nurses, student doctors, clinicians working in the cosmetic beauty industry, health research or other healthcare workers who require these specialised skills.
This course is delivered in two parts: an e-learning module and a practical simulation module.
Once enrolled, you must complete an e-learning module, which will take approximately one hour. This e-learning module will provide you with the knowledge required to underpin the practical component of the course.
Practical simulation module
Following successful completion of the e-learning module, participants will learn venepuncture and peripheral intravenous cannulation techniques in a hands-on, simulated 6.5 hour workshop.
Participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance upon successful completion of the course and assessment in performing venepuncture and peripheral intravenous cannulation in a simulated environment.
This course will require approximately 1.5 hours to complete the e-learning module, prior to the 6.5 hour practical workshop component.
Practical Workshop 8:30am-3:30pm

Advanced Instructor Course (AIC)
This simulator instructor training is designed to prepare leaders in simulation-based education to develop their own debriefing and feedback skills and contribute to strategic management and development of simulation programs in their organisation.
Advanced Life Support (ALS)
Advanced Life Support (ALS) training arms clinicians with the skills they need to provide urgent treatment when faced with cardiac emergencies such as cardiac arrest, stroke, and myocardial infarction.
