Workbooks

If you’re looking for an alternative to face-to-face medication training, we recommend our Online Foundation Course in Medicines Administration. It covers giving medicines in a systematic way to avoid errors and includes videos on correct medicines administration techniques. Click here to see all of our online courses.

Workbooks

We provide some courses as physical workbooks as some people prefer physical copies of a book. Each book is printed with a unique number that unlocks an online knowledge assessment.

We also have paper assessments if you don’t have computer access.

SUPPORT THE USE OF MEDICATION IN SOCIAL CARE SETTINGS – WORKBOOK (VERSION 5)

This is an in depth course focusing on all aspects of medicines management and administration (in line with NICE guidelines). At 122 pages, it’s both a useful reference book to have at work, as well as a more in depth course for those wishing to understand the subject in more depth. The course is accredited by the Royal College of Nursing. This is also available as an online only course.

SUPPORT THE USE OF MEDICATION IN SOCIAL CARE SETTINGS – COMMUNITY SETTINGS

The community version of this course is still available as a printed workbook. It is aimed at staff who only work in community settings such as home care, reablement, supported living, personal assistants etc.

MEDICINES KNOWLEDGE: ANTICOAGULANTS AND OTHER HIGH-RISK MEDICINES - WORKBOOK

CQC expect you to have a certain level of knowledge about the medicines you administer. As a starting point, you need to know where to go for reliable medicines information. In addition, you should also know about those medicines which carry a higher-risk to those you support. The course will get you familiar with these so called “higher risk” medicines: what problems to lookout for, how to monitor these medicines and what to do if things go wrong.

May I take this opportunity to pass on a bit of praise for your books. One of our managers told me yesterday that it was the best workbook she had ever used: Plain English; easy to dip in and out so using relevant chapters when needed; excellent information; well presented. Nothing she would change.

As well as offering online courses, we have the following courses available as distance learning workbooks. Each book comes with a unique number which unlocks an online question module. Once you have passed the question module, this triggers the release of the certificate which you can print off.
