Intramuscular injection technique: refresher for pharmacists
From flu vaccines to travel health services, and now COVID vaccinations, injections are becoming part of the daily routine in community pharmacy. Is your technique up to scratch?
Some community pharmacies offer a range of services that require pharmacists to have an effective injection technique. To deliver these services, you are required to undergo training to ensure you can confidently and competently deliver a vaccine. However, it is important to regularly reflect on your injection technique, especially if you have not delivered a intramuscular vaccine recently or do not feel confident in your ability.
