WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
Medication Administration training is an excellent course for healthcare professionals with the responsibility of receiving, storing, administering and disposing of medication.
WHY DO YOU NEED THIS COURSE?
Medication can be fatal when misused but when used effectively is a very powerful tool to alleviate symptoms and improve or prolong a person’s life.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspects medicine safety as part of their key line of enquiry, so it is essential that care and support staff are competent. Services cannot achieve outstanding inspections if safety is not prioritised.
Healthcare professionals are not only responsible for the safe delivery of medication but also upholding dignity, encouraging independence and respecting choices the service user/patient makes.
