Medication Training - Gain Essential Knowledge

Medication training covers the science and health aspects of working with medications and prescriptions. 

Individuals who are responsible for the handling and administration of prescriptions have an important job, as receiving the wrong medication can have disastrous effects. Medication training aims to provide learners with the skills to administer medication safely, minimise medication errors, and increase the understanding of medications, potential side effects and medical interaction between medications.

Medication training is vital to many different professions. For an individual working in child care or elderly care, medication training is helpful, if not required. Individuals in these positions must administer prescriptions safely, in order to minimise problems and reduce the likelihood of harm or illness. In order to do this job effectively, medication personnel must be able to understand the attached label and dosing guidelines; know what the medicine is intended to do; and know whether there are any special precautions, for example, if the medicine should be given with food.

In the health and social care industry, it is equally important for medication administers to accurately record and keep track of what has been administered and when it has been administered. This way, anyone can understand what the care worker has done and others will be able to account for all of the medicines administered to an individual.

Overview of Medication Training 

Medication training is available for a variety of different sectors and requirements. Open courses are available all throughout the UK and distance courses are also popular for those looking to learn at their own pace, or whilst working.

Common medication training topics include:

  • Medical & Clinical Administration
  • Pharmacology
  • Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients
  • Pharmacovigilance
  • First Aid
  • Regulatory Affairs for Medical Devices
  • Medical Device Software: Regulations and Requirements
  • Health and Social Care, inluding Chaperoning, Diabetes Awareness and Dementia Care
  • Drug/Device and Device/Drug Combinations in the EU and USA
  • Clinical Trials Manufacture and Supply

Medication Management courses aim to provide delegates with knowledge of applicable legislation, policy and procedure, as well as the soles and boundaries of workers around self administration of medication.

Safe Handling Of Medicines Certificate programmes are designed for all health care staff whose duties involve medication administration. This type of medication training would benefit all those seeking clear guidelines and advice regarding the various elements of safe administration of medicines.
