Medication Training for Nurses - Accredited 

Royal College of Nursing and NMC Approved

It’s interesting to note that statistically there is no difference in the number of medication errors made in nursing homes vs residential homes and yet surely you would expect it to be significantly lower in our nursing homes?

Often within the care environment it is our nursing staff who miss out on the training and refresher training that they so much need in order to stay up to date in their practice because the assumption is that our nurses don’t need training as they are nurses! In reality they too still need to be refreshed in the basics and to have the opportunity to receive continuing professional development within their roles in our care homes.

This course provides both a sound update for their knowledge and practice and additional information that they can add to their CPD portfolio and use to raise the standards of the care provided even more and is accredited by the College of Pharmacy Practice.

·         Legislation and guidance
