Introduction to our training programmes

LiDCO training courses have been specifically designed to give our delegates the practical skills and interpretive knowledge underpinned by up-to-date theory and research to successfully utilise our monitor in the care setting.

Nurses will have the practical skills, confidence and knowledge to use the equipment along with the tools necessary to facilitate their colleagues’ development.

Upon successful completion, delegates will receive an RCN certificate and knowledge pack to take back to their units where they can be a great resource for the rest of the team.
