This is a more in depth version of our Foundation Course in Medicines Administration. It takes about 2 hours longer than our express version (which you can see here). The course covers CQC and Skills for Care core/mandatory training requirements for medicines administration and management. It teaches how to administer medicines in a systematic way against our competence checklist that is continually refined, from years of 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.
This more comprehensive version of the course also includes:
Care support workers and nurses working in care homes.
Online: Approx 4-6 hours
The educational content of this course is accredited by the Royal College of Nursing until 2024 (RCN cannot confirm competence of any practitioner). As a learning provider, we are endorsed by Skills for Care.
