Introduction to the Safe Handling of Medicines Online Course
Medicines may make us better when we are ill, but the incorrect dosage or the wrong medicines to the wrong people can cause a lot of harm. This is why those handling medicines, particularly those in working in the care industry who may be responsible for many different patients’ medication, need to handle it correctly.
This online course begins by explaining key terminology, before talking in detail about the roles people have. The modules also contain elements look at issues such as legislation, some different groups of medicines, infection control, label interpretation and more.
There are multiple choice questions at the end of each unit. Those who successfully achieve the minimum mark required to pass these assessments are rewarded with a printable certificate.
An e-learning course is ideal for those who cannot get time away from the workplace and do not require a tailored course which deals with specific risks. If you do, then an open course or bespoke/in-house course will be much more suitable for your requirements.
