Virtual Study Session – Syringe Drivers in End of Life Care

St Catherine’s Hospice Knowledge Exchange Team have developed new Interactive Training sessions in order to continue providing a programme of high quality education.

Syringe drivers may be used in managing symptoms for patients, who are at the end of their lives. Not all patients who are dying require a syringe driver, however, there are common symptoms associated with dying that may need to be managed by the use of one of these devices.

Common symptoms include:

  • Pain
  • Nausea and /or vomiting
  • Dyspnoea
  • Respiratory secretions
  • Agitation/restlessness

What will I learn?

  • Indications/rationale for commencing use of a syringe driver
  • Drug compatibility/incompatibility
  • Siting of the needle
  • Useful tips when in use
  • Trouble shooting – problems you may encounter and how to manage them
  • McKinley T34 practical

This session will be delivered ONLINE by St Catherine’s Hospice. You would need to have access to a computer or mobile device with internet connection, a webcam and a microphone.

Please note attendees must log into the event via the invite received from St Catherine’s Hospice 15 minutes before the start.
