Programme Outline

Our Medication Awareness course will take a full day to complete. During this time, we will discuss your legal responsibilities as a medication administrator, as well as the local policies and procedures that you will need to follow. We will also think about the most common medications that you will come across and the classification that applies to different types of medicine. Following the course, you will have a better idea of the side effects and behaviour to watch out for when you prescribe certain medications. Our experienced trainers will also explain why it’s important to keep medical records and the best way recording techniques, so you are able to do this effectively when you return to the workplace. If you find that you make a mistake when administering medicine, it is essential that you report it in line with company procedures. All of the information covered in this training session will prepare you for having to administer medicine in a care setting.
