The Medication Training Foundation Course in Medicines Administration is available as an online module.
It teaches medicines administration as a 12-step process (based on our years of research as a company into why medication errors occur). This ensures medicines are given in a safe and systematic way, thereby reducing the risk of mistakes made through complacency. Delegates will also complete a Virtual Medicines Round module that tests a person’s competence at selecting the correct medicine.
