Abstract

Introduction/background: The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Nutrition teach students to use the ventrogluteal (VG) site as the preferred site for intramuscular injections. While on clinical placement, third year nursing students enrolled in a mental health subject identified that clinical preceptors and educators were not familiar with the VG site and felt uncomfortable when supervising students performing this task, and preferred instead for the student to use the dorsogluteal site for intramuscular administration of antipsychotic medications. In response to this identified theory-practice gap a practical educational intervention was developed by staff at James Cook University, in collaboration with mental health educators at the hospital, for hospital clinicians.
