Phlebotomy 2016 Preview: Using Magic as a Distraction Technique

In this final Phlebotomy 2016 Preview, Mayo Clinic Radiology Technologist Joe Swicklik previews his presentation about using the principles of magic to quickly build rapport with children while serving as a wonderful tool to distract from the feeling of pain, fear, and anxiety in the medical setting. This breakout session will also provide phlebotomists with other practical tools they need to help them succeed in everyday collections.

Registration will be closing soon for Mayo Medical Laboratories' Phlebotomy 2016 conference, Restoring the Balance: People. Purpose. Passion. The conference will be held April 14-15 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Rochester, Minnesota.
