Improve the quality of your test results and the safety of your team and patients. The blood withdrawal course is designed to introduce or improve the venipuncture skills for research assistants, clinical trials coordinators and medical assistants who are drawing blood for the first time or seeking to improve their existing skills.
This section of the course provides an overview of both human anatomy and human physiology with a special emphasis on the blood system and the circulatory system.
Throughout the course, special emphasis is placed on possible complications arising from human error when withdrawing blood and the proper responses to potential complications.
This course also ends with a detailed discussion of universal blood drawing precautions. The emphasis here is placed on OSHA’s bloodborne pathogens standard that safeguards against the transmission of bloodborne diseases.
