Advanced Medication Training - Full Day Course

This Advanced Medication training course has been developed to meet the needs of Care Managers and Senior Care Workers both in County Councils, Social Services Departments and the Private Care Sector to educate and inform them of exactly what information needs to be gathered from a service user in order to ensure they receive the correct package of care when supporting with their medicines.

The Medication Care Needs Assessment is a key process within the Care Needs Assessment. Having the correct information to promote independence, support effectively and have appropriate documentation to record the right information is vital not only to meet CQC requirements for inspection AND to support the care worker in their role. It is therefore paramount that as a service commissioner or provider your assessors know what details to collect and record, what questions to ask and how and what support from other professionals they can access to help them.

• Why the need for a Medicines Needs Assessment?
• What information is required for the care plan
• Levels of support that may be provided by Care Teams
• Consent at Care Needs Assessment
• Consent and Covert Administration
• Record keeping both for Care Needs Assessments and Medication Administration Records
• Where and when to get support
• Compliance Aids - which are authorised for you to legally support service users with and how to obtain them
• Medication reviews
• Promoting Independence - Enabling rather than Doing
• What medicines are and how they work
• The Most common medicines and what they are used for.

Delegates will be given handouts/workbooks and relevant documents such as checklist, sample record forms, etc. and a certificate of attendance.
In-house training Cost per delegate = £80 + VAT (Min 6 delegates) plus travel to your venue.
