Topics included during the session are:

• Indications for using a syringe driver, to include advantages and possible disadvantages.

• Common medications used in a syringe driver, to include compatibilities and diluents.

• Setting up the syringe driver, to include necessary equipment, documentation and ongoing monitoring and trouble shooting skills.

• This session will be delivered using our ECHO (Extension of Community Healthcare Outcomes) technology.
