The focus of this unit of competency is the safe and accurate collection of routine blood samples and requires students to demonstrate knowledge of correct techniques for venepuncture and skin puncture. Employees need to understand the risks involved and the limits of their responsibilities in specimen collection. There is a lot more required than just getting the blood; employees need to ensure the correct tubes are used and adhere to the methods of collection, transport and identification of the client.
