Medication administration is part of the mandatory courses set by CQC because it is an essential and key area of client care.
Medication can be dangerous when misused but when used effectively is a very powerful tool to alleviate symptoms and improve or prolong a person's life.
Healthcare workers are not only responsible for the safe delivery of medication but also upholding dignity, encouraging independence and respecting choices the patient makes. This course can also be run as a refresher course for any member of the healthcare team. At the end of the day, all learners will be required to take an exam to prove their knowledge, which to date has a 100% pass rate.
