Female catheterisation occasionally shows up as an OSCE station. It’s often feared because of the relatively large number of steps and pieces of equipment involved. There’s often a significant number of marks available for communication skills. There are generally two approaches to catheterisation, the two gloved technique and the clean hand / dirty hand technique. Please use the method taught at your medical school (this guide demonstrates the clean hand / dirty hand method). Check out the female catheterisation OSCE mark scheme here.
