Medications Awareness

Training Approved by Skills for Care

Medications training is required in many sectors including the care industry to ensure that all staff have a basic understanding of the important rules when handling medications. This awareness course gives you the basic knowledge to understand the legal framework and how the organisation's policies and procedures reflect the legal framework, for safe handling of medicines, to understand the importance of noting and reporting any changes to individuals following administration of medicines.

The information on this course has to be used alongside the policies and procedures of your workplace to ensure that corrective action is taken at all times. This is also ideal for anyone who looks after a family member and is responsible for ensuring they are given the correct dose as well as understanding contra-indications of a medication.
