Description

Intramuscular injections require a thorough and meticulous approach to patient assessment and injection technique. This article, the second in a series of two, reviews the evidence base to inform safer practice and to consider the evidence for nursing practice in this area. A framework for safe practice is included, identifying important points for safe technique, patient care and clinical decision making. It also highlights the ongoing debate in selection of intramuscular injection sites, predominately the ventrogluteal and dorsogluteal muscles.

Objectives

This module aims to address safe injection practice with particular reference to intramuscular techniques. Methods of minimising the particular risks to the patient of intramuscular injections are discussed and a framework to promote safer practice is provided. Good patient assessment is integral to any injection, and also a fundamental aspect of any nursing procedure – the principles of this vital skill are presented.

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Describe the common injection sites for intramuscular injections and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each.
List the risks associated with intramuscular injections.
List the main steps in injection technique that minimise potential adverse effects.
Discuss the principles of patient assessment to maximise the success of intramuscular injections.
