Hospice NZ Syringe Driver Full Competency Training 2021/2022

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.

Hospice Eastern Bay of Plenty offers monthly training sessions on the 1st Tuesday of every month. Each session is $50 and includes a pre-reading workbook, two hour workshop & written test paper.
