RVNs deal with different types of laboratory samples every day in practice, and it is essential that they are trained in sample collection, handling and quality analysis to prevent degradation of the sample and laboratory error which can lead to inaccurate or delayed diagnosis and treatment. A good knowledge of laboratory values & understanding the importance of some key results can also play a large part in leading to improved patient care.
This one-day interactive course aims to give nurses the skills they need to play an active and engaging role in this rewarding part of practice life, using a combination of both theory and practical sessions.
