The Advanced Medication Training for Carers course will outline the requisite for a Medicines Needs Assessment and what information is required for the care plan.
Participants will be introduced to the different levels of support that are provided by care teams and guided on policies, procedures and medication administration record keeping.
- Consent and covert administration
- Record keeping
- Authorised compliance aids
- Common medicines
- Medication reviews
- Promoting independence
Practical and engaging activities will introduce a culture that empowers and enables rather than doing, so that carers can feel confident in managing medication and supporting clients.
Guidance on when and where to access support will be given.
