Phlebotomy also referred to as venipuncture is the surgical puncture of a vein in order to draw blood from a patient via medical needles. It s carried out by a qualified phlebotomist and the blood is then studied by a physician to determine the health of a patient. The blood may also be used for another patient in need of a blood transfusion.
Theory Training includes understanding of the basics of Phlebotomy, Legal aspects of Phlebotomy, Infection control, Health and Safety.
You will also practice on a mannequin.
Practical training includes Live Blood Sessions. This is the practical part of the training.
Paediatric Phlebotomy Training students are taught significantly more than simply realizing exactly where to place the needle when drawing blood.
