INTRAMUSCULAR INJECTION

Certificate Program

(with Sub-Cutaneous, Intradermal, Depot Injection & Vaccinations) 

We are enrolling new students for our Diploma and Certificate programs online and via phone & email. During this period of lock-down our students are able to continue their education through instructor led online classes and in-class practical sessions in small groups, to be job ready in their respective fields of study.

Program Overview:

 

An intramuscular injection is a technique used to deliver a medication deep into the muscles. This allows the medication to be absorbed into the bloodstream quickly  and usually it is used for particular forms of medication that are administered in small volumes.

Intramuscular injections are a common practice in modern medicine. They’re used to deliver drugs and vaccines. Several drugs and almost all injectable vaccines are delivered this way. Intramuscular injections are used when other types of delivery methods are not recommended.

 

This Certificate training program provides knowledge and information about the preferred safe location, dose and technique. It also provides the students an opportunity for skills and knowledge upgrade within existing career in the healthcare field.

Practicum  Course (2-3 hrs of Practical session) 

Practicum students practice Intra-muscular, Sub Cut, Depot, Intra Dermal Injections and vaccinations handling skills learned in theory class. They practice on various types of simulation models. They receive instruction on how to prepare the injection,  site selection, how to prepare the dose of the medication,  proper injection techniques, post-puncture care, and processing and management of the sharps and medical wastes.
