Urinary Bladder Catheterisation (AM)
Urinary Bladder Catheterisation is a clinical skill that is frequently required for the person whose ability to micturate effectively has been compromised, for those requiring an invasive diagnostic procedure and also for those requiring the procedure routinely post-operatively. This tutorial provides the theoretical component with respect to male and female urinary bladder catheterisation and care of a supra-pubic catheter, and includes a practical demonstration of male urinary bladder catheterisation using an anatomical model. Each participant will receive certification of attendance relating to the theoretical teaching of urinary bladder catheterisation and care of a Supra-Pubic Catheter. PLEASE NOTE: The completion of this tutorial does NOT provide the participant with the competency to undertake any form of urinary bladder catheterisation in ANY clinical facility. Competency with respect to the practical component of this skill MUST be determined by your employer, normally following the completion of a determined number of urinary bladder catheterisations under supervision as stated in the Clinical facility Urinary Bladder Catheterisation policy It is delivered by Wesley Sterling, Tutor to Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy, Queens University Belfast.

Bullying in a work environment can cause tremendous emotional distress as well as severely impact on people’s capacity to carry out their role. Employers have a duty of care to employees and there are a number of remedies you can pursue if you believe you are being bullied. For managers it is important to ensure that staff are enabled to work in a supportive environment which maximises their ability to contribute. Sometimes there is a blurred line between performance management and a belief by the staff member that they are being bullied. This course will explore the employer’s duty of care, what constitutes bullying, what remedies are available to someone who is experiencing it and how managers can respond pro-actively.
