Welcome to the Clinical Skills Managed Educational Network


                       New Educational Resource- Lumbar Puncture

The New Lumbar Puncture Resource is now available on the resources page of our website.

The course, developed by James Tiernan (NHS Lothian), Russell Hewett (NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde), Calum McGregor (NHS Lanarkshire), Graham Nimmo (NHS Lothian), is aimed at any health care practitioner currently working or training to work in the NHS, in the UK, who is involved with a lumbar puncture procedure.

This clinical skills programme has been developed to enable practitioners to develop their knowledge and skills for lumbar puncture. Adopting a multi-professional approach to clinical skills training will promote standardised practice in the delivery of health care procedures, will encourage effective working relationships and will provide patients with access to multi-skilled, flexible health care practitioners.

The programme can be accessed here
