Medication Training for Nurses - eCourse

Approved by the Royal College of Nursing

It’s interesting to note that statistically there is not 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 received 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.

"The course is so broad, easy and interesting to learn, covering all areas of medication. I thought giving a client medication whilst he/she was standing up was abuse, I was wrong! By the time you fifinsh the course you are saturated with knowledge and highly, highly knowledgable" Martha Motadi
