Short description. Read this learning module to update your knowledge and skills in the administration of subcutaneous injections. The evidence base in this area is reviewed and a framework for safe practice provided.

Detailed description. Injections are routinely administered by nurses in acute care settings and in the community. Nurses require a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology, pharmacological principles and equipment, and potential risks to the patient of injections. Nurses should also take an active approach to patient assessment before injecting medicines. This learning module provides an evidence-based review of injection administration, with particular reference to subcutaneous injections, and suggests a framework for best practice.
