Certification for Syringe Drivers can be maintained by attending periodic updates. Hospice New Zealand currently recommends annual updates for nurses occasionally using syringe drivers and alternate years for nurses using syringe drivers routinely. Participants should complete a written test paper 2 yearly, so nurses who attend yearly do not need to complete a written test every year.
Welcome to our Syringe Driver Annual Update Workshop
Programme Aim: ‘To assist Registered Nurses to obtain the theoretical and practical knowledge and skills they require to manage syringe drivers in their place of practice and for Enrolled Nurses to be competent in checking’.
Structure: The Syringe Driver Annual Update programme consists of two parts;
1. Pre-reading workbook containing rationales, guidelines, drug information and practice calculations
2. 1.5hour workshop consisting of a half hour of tutorial based learning and one hour of practical hands on learning with the syringe driver and a practical assessment.
3. Attainment of competence. This consists of completing a practical assessment during the workshop. A certificate will be issued once this is completed.
