Strategies for adapting to damaged veins, such as those in intravenous drug users or chemotherapy patients, as well as fragile or small veins, like those encountered in geriatric and pediatric patients will be discussed and demonstrated in a hands-on lab setting.
After completing the workshop, students will be issued an Advanced Phlebotomy Techniques workshop certificate to bolster their resume and qualifications.
