This distance learning course comprises a 116-page full colour course manual plus an on-line assessment. If you are looking for medication training for front line community care staff we would recommend our online Foundation course instead (click here). This course is more suited to managers or supervisors who wish to understand how to manage medicines in community settings in more depth. It’s a useful reference book to keep in the office.
