Nurses are frequently called upon to insert intravenous cannulae. Traditional training has involved a study day followed by supervised practice, but in one trust, many nurses failed to continue cannulation afterwards. A flexible system of training, using videos and workbooks was introduced, which has enabled nurses to build a portfolio of clinical skills at their own pace.
