Practical workshops: vaccination techniques, anaphylaxis and BLS

*Limited availability** 

This accredited workshop will enable you to develop the practical skills required to vaccinate both adults and children against influenza (the ‘flu’) and other illnesses.

You will also be trained to recognise and manage anaphylaxis and how to perform basic life support (adults and children).

As this is a practical workshop we recommend that you complete any relevant eLearning before you attend at the workshop

During the practical workshop, all delegates will have their vaccination technique (IM and S/C) observed by the specialist trainer. However, we recommend that all delegates who are new to immunisation undertake a period of supervised competency assessment in your clinical area. We can provide a competency framework to assist this process.

  • Target audience: nurses, health care assistants, pharmacists and other registered health care staff involved in vaccination / immunisation. Please note: this training does not cover the role of an HCA or process of delegating the task. Currently this must be done at a local / organisational level.
  • Level: suitable for those new to vaccination (as part of a blended programme) as well as those requiring an update.
  • Course duration: 3.5 hours

You will also get access to our Flu Immunisation Refresher Bundle (worth £45) which gives background theoretical knowledge. Online course enrolments will be sent once course is confirmed. All learners will receive a CPD certificate.

  • Due to COVID19 restrictions we aim to confirm all bookings for FULL (practical face-to-face*) training at least 28 days before the date of the practical workshop. At this time you will receive detailed delegate information including what PPE you will be required to wear during your training session.
  • Online course enrolments will be sent once course is confirmed.
  • We want to facilitate your learning, however everyone’s safety and well being remains our paramount concern. Therefore, please be aware that all practical workshops run the risk of being cancelled at short notice if we feel that it is in everyone’s best interest to do so. We will of course do everything we can to mitigate this risk.
