This is a more in depth version of our Foundation Course in Medicines Administration for Care Homes. This version is accredited by the Royal College of Nursing and Skills for Care. It is suitable for nurses, but can also be taken by care staff who require a more in depth foundation course. It teaches how to administer medicines in a systematic way against our competence checklist that has been refined on an ongoing basis from our research into why medication errors occur, thereby reducing the risk of errors made through complacency. It is based on our face-to-face workshop that has been shown to reduce medication errors by 36% in a study by Hampshire County Council. There are 16 modules in total.
You can also combine this with our latest Virtual Medicines Round module that tests a person’s competence at selecting the correct medicine.
