Description

Medications training is required in many sectors including the care industry to ensure that all staff have a basic understanding of the important rules when handling medications.  This course gives you the knowledge to understand the legal framework and how the organisation’s policies and procedures reflect the legal framework, for safe handling of medicines, to understand the importance of noting and reporting any changes to individuals following administration of medicines; and managers’ responsibilities and the implementation of ongoing monitoring of the care worker.

ProTrainings are Skills for Care Endorsed for both our classroom and e-learning courses. This means that our training meets the high standards expected by Skills for Care.

The information on this course has to be used alongside the policies and procedures of your workplace to ensure that corrective action is taken at all times. This is also ideal for anyone who looks after a family member and is responsible for ensuring they are given the correct dose as well as understanding the contra-indications of a medication.
