"Staff responsible for the management and administration of medication must be suitably trained and competent and this should be kept under review" - Regulated Activities 12(2)(g)

This training session is based on the QCF unit for Diploma in Health and Social care and will provide participants with the knowledge required to safely administer medication. Older people in care homes are among the most vulnerable members of our society, reliant on care home staff for many of their everyday needs. A combination of complex medical conditions may lead to the need to take multiple medications with care home residents taking 7‐8 medications on average. It is important that staff are appropriately trained to reduce the number of medication errors.
