Intravenous Contrast Injection (Practical Component)

On April 15, join us in the OAMRS office at McMaster Innovation Park to complete the practical component of the Intravenous Contrast Injection course. This training will take place from 9 am-12 noon and is available to OAMRS members as well as non-members. The price for the course is $91.00 for OAMRS members and $130.00 for non-members. Only those who have successfully completed the didactic (theory) portion of this course will be qualified to attend the practical component. There are just 12 spots available for this course, so be sure to reserve your spot today! If you are not one of the first 12 to register, you will be added to our waitlist. All necessary tools and equipment for the course will be provided, and you will be presented with a certificate upon successful completion of the practical component.  If your hospital or clinic is interested in hosting on-site practical IV training at your facility, please email the OAMRS at [email protected]



This is the practical portion of the two-part OAMRS Intravenous Contrast Injection Enhanced Practice Certificate. The practical component is delivered in a live, one-day workshop format at a centralized host site or alternate. 

Venous identification and insertion techniques are a vital part of the hands-on portion of the course. Proper aseptic technique and the safe use of sharps are reviewed and practiced throughout.  Participants will practice proper insertion of both the venous catheter and the winged infusion set, setting up intravenous solutions, monitoring the administration of IV solutions, and injecting into pre-existing lines. 

The practical component enables the participant to gain skills in venous identification, IV insertion techniques and proper aseptic preparation. Aseptic technique and the safe use of sharps are reviewed and practised throughout the workshop. Practice will occur on both simulated and real arms. DISCLAIMER: As part of the training, participants will be required to perform venipunctures on one another.
