ABOUT THIS COURSE

This online Medication Awareness Training for Care provides essential training to care assistants and general care staff working in both nursing and non-nursing care homes. Participants will learn how to administer and manage medication that aligns with legal requirements to perform the administration safely.

It’s the responsibility of Care Home Managers to ensure that their staff are suitably trained – what’s considered “suitable training” is at their discretion. This Administering Medication in Care Homes training course acts as a refresher - or a reminder of the essentials - to be used alongside practical training.

Course participants will understand the needs of an individual before the administration of medication through the online course and will learn the importance of Medicines Administration Record [MAR] sheets. Alongside this, recognising the side effects should a patient have a reaction to some of the medication provided.

By following the guidelines set by The Department of Health, we ensure participants are given the best training possible.

Understanding the needs of patients, safe handling of medications, preparation and recording are all key parts of this Medication Awareness Training for Care.
