Supporting People To Take Medications

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. This enjoyable course will equip you to deal with medications in the workplace.

This programme is delivered face to face over one day in a workshop style. Those taking part will learn through practical and taught sessions including interactive and participative activities.

The training supports the knowledge requirements within the Care Caertificate Standard 13 and CQC fundamental standards http://www.cqc.uk/what-we-do/how-we-do-our-job/fun... and is designed to compliment a medication e learning package developed in Yorkshire.
