Urinary Catheterisation

This set of interactive resources provides a full introduction to urinary catherisation for nursing and medical students and trainees.  

In the following six units, the catherisation procedures and underlying physiology are clearly explained using illustrations and video demonstrations. All units include interactive questions to test your understanding as you go. The full set takes up to three hours to work through, but the units do not need to be attempted in one go.

  1. Normal physiology and pathophysiology of the lower urinary tract
  2. Indications for catheterisation and catheter selection
  3. Adult urinary catheterisation and catheter care
  4. Urethral catheterisation technique
  5. Catheter care and infection control
  6. Suprapubic and clean intermittent self-catheterisation

This material was written by Dr Sue Woodward and the videos created by Carol Fordham-Clarke, who are both lecturers in adult nursing in the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care, King’s College London.
