Event Description:

The Phlebotomy Technician Profession

The phlebotomist is a vital member of the clinical laboratory team, whose main function is to obtain a patient’s blood specimens by venipuncture and microcollection for testing purposes. Phlebotomists are employed throughout the health care system including in hospitals, neighborhood health centers, medical group practices, HMO’s, public health facilities, veteran hospitals, insurance carriers, and in other health care settings. The demand for phlebotomy technicians has increased substantially with the overall complexity of health care services and the risks of infectious diseases. Current health care industry experts predict a 15% increase in phlebotomy jobs in 2018.

The Phlebotomy Technician Program prepares professionals to collect blood and other specimens from clients for the purpose of laboratory analysis. This course covers the following key areas and topics:

+ Process and procedures for collecting blood specimens for laboratory analysis

+ All aspects of blood collection and related procedures

+ The order of draw

+ Universal precautions

+ Skills to perform venipunctures completely and safely

+ Terminology and related anatomy and physiology
