Bowel Care and Suppository Administration

The Bowel Care and Suppository Administration course is designed to be delivered on-site at a venue chosen by the participants. It has a duration of 4 hours and is priced at £875 for a maximum of 8 learners. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a Certificate of Competency from FRT.

This course is mapped to the National Occupational Standard SFHCC09. The SFHCC09 standard sets the guidelines and expectations for bowel care and suppository administration in a specific industry or context. By aligning the course with this standard, it ensures that participants receive training that meets industry benchmarks and requirements related to bowel care and suppository administration.

During the 4-hour duration of the course, participants can expect to receive comprehensive instruction and practical training in various aspects of bowel care and suppository administration. The course covers topics such as understanding the anatomy and physiology of the bowel, recognizing common bowel disorders, learning proper techniques for administering suppositories, and addressing potential complications or risks associated with this procedure.

The course incorporates a combination of theoretical presentations, interactive discussions, demonstrations, and hands-on practice to enhance participants' understanding and skills. Emphasis is placed on promoting safe and effective bowel care practices, ensuring participant competency in administering suppositories, and adhering to relevant guidelines and protocols.

By choosing to have the course delivered on-site, participants benefit from the convenience of receiving training at a location of their choice. This also allows for potential customization of the course to address specific needs or challenges within the chosen venue, facilitating a more tailored learning experience.
