There is often a lack of formal training around controlled drugs, with myths adding to poor practice. This is compounded by the fact that most controlled drugs registers are designed for hospitals and pharmacies and therefore not suited for use by care homes. This course will teach you how to manage and administer controlled drugs in line with legal requirements and national best practice (Controlled drugs: safe use and management, NICE guideline [NG46] April 2016).
We have also designed a new CD register, field tested with two national care organisations, that we can train staff to use on this course.
