Microsuction Course

microsuction procedure

This is a 1 day intensive microsuction course for nurses, audiologists and other healthcare practitioners, combining practical and taught sessions.

This course was written in response to demand from healthcare practitioners, including audiologists. It is now well established and well respected. It is one of the very few microsuction courses for ears in the UK. It is backed by a comprehensive protocol and is taught by practitioners who have been providing this service for patients for more than fifteen years.

Following feedback and evaluation the essential elements of the original two-day course have been developed into a new programme which includes practical and taught sessions covering anatomy and physiology of the ear, the basics of wax and wax removal, equipment, principles, contraindications and procedure. There is practical experience using a dummy head. For legal and ethical reasons we believe that practicising on patients and/or friends is unprofessional and potentially dangerous.  Carrying out microsuction on people should be confined to your own patients under the supervision of a mentor. 

As a result of the necessity for social distancing we will be putting new teaching methods into place, both for your safety and ours.  This will take the form of some interactive teaching via the internet and some practical tuition. It is important, therefore, that if your experience  of microsuction is limited you have a mentor at your place of work, to ensure that you achieve the required competencies.  Further details will be posted here nearer the time, and will, of course, be sent to you when you book a place.

Suitable For:

  • Registered nurses
  • Audiologists
  • Pharmacists
  • Paramedics
  • Other suitably qualified health professionals

All delegates should have comprehensive experience of ear care

We recommend that, following the course, those delegates with little experience of the microsuction procedure acquire a suitable mentor and complete a programme of clinical competencies.
