CSCI Syringe Driver

Aims of Syringe Driver Use

  • Promote stable plasma concentration of medication used for maximum symptom control
  • Eliminate the need for repeated injections, suppositories or oral medication

The procedure must be carried out by a Registered Nurse who must ensure that they are fully competent to carry out this procedure. As part of orientation, each new nurse must be made aware of the Hospice procedure, attend a Syringe Driver Workshop at Hospice in the Weald as necessary and complete a syringe driver assessment.


The above is an extract from our CSCI Syringe Driver guideline.
