2/5 [Rôle infirmier autonome] Prélèvement veineux

Une vidéo du Centre National de lutte contre la Douleur (CNRD), constituant support de formation à l'usage des professionnels et des étudiants en soins infirmiers. Un premier film de 22 minutes (1/5) expose la problématique de la douleur provoquée par les soins : « Point de vue d’experts ». Il est accompagné des vidéos 2/5 à 5/5 décrivant des soins en contexte. L’objectif principal de ces vidéos est de recenser les techniques du savoir-faire infirmier relevant du rôle autonome (rôle propre) dans le cadre de la prévention de la douleur provoquée par les soins. Les soins présentés relèvent uniquement du rôle propre infirmier ou des soins relevant d’une prescription médicale réalisés par l’infirmière en dehors de la présence d’un médecin. Sont exclus de ce support les soins réalisés par le médecin en présence de l’infirmière. Pour ces derniers, l’infirmière pourra bien entendu mettre en œuvre les moyens de prévention conseillés dans ces vidéos. Ces vidéos sont disponibles gratuitement au format DVD, sur simple demande auprès du CNRD, par mail : || Auteure : Pascale Wanquet-Thibault || Conseillères techniques et scientifiques : Evelyne Malaquin-Pavan et Emmanuelle Guillemin || Visiter :
