IV therapy has historically been used in hospitals to treat dehydrated or nutrient-deficient patients, as well as those who cannot take medication orally. Injecting fluids, nutrients and medication intravenously allows them to be absorbed immediately into the bloodstream and, therefore, take effect more quickly.

This practice should only be carried out by a skilled professional, so our online IV Drug Therapy is suitable for those working in a clinical or care setting, such as nurses. In this course, learners will be taught the correct methods to carry out cannulation intravenous therapy, as well as learning about patient management during and after IV therapy and the potential complications of intravenous therapy.

The aim of this IV Drug Therapy course is to greater increase your understanding of intravenous therapy and awareness of its associated risks.

  • Understand IV Therapy
