Person Centred Administration of Medication

There are many care settings in which the safe handling and administration of medication is a key part of care and support. Anyone involved in healthcare and social care (paid or unpaid) has a responsibility to ensure that there is not only safe handling of medication but also that support is person centred.

Our training is available to care and support workers, nurses and unpaid carers.

It is important to have up to date training on safe techniques with an annual refresher. Our training is mapped to Standard 13.5 – Understand medication and healthcare techniques.
