55.00Book Now

Due to the current Covid-19 crisis, Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services have taken the decision to close the Education & Research Centre to all activity until the end of April 2020, in order to minimise the risk to our patients and staff. Accordingly, we have had to take the sad decision to all events and courses that were due to take place during that time. The intention is to hold these events in the autumn and all tickets purchased for those events will be transferable to the autumn date – we will update you as soon as we have confirmed a date. If you would prefer to receive a full refund instead, please contact our administration office by remail education@olh.ie.

This half day workshop will provide nurses, doctors and pharmacists with an opportunity to develop the theoretical knowledge and practical skill required to manage subcutaneous infusions using the McKinley T34 Ambulatory Syringe Pump and also addresses the fundamentals of opioid conversion.
