Refresher of Medication Level 2 Administration (Residential, Day Centres and Customers own homes)

Workshop
This half day refresher workshop is for WSCC staff and individuals working within the private, voluntary and independent care sector who have previously attended the Medication Level 2 workshop with West Sussex County Council within the last 2 years.

This workshop is for those who require a refresher and update and are responsible for providing Administration of Medication Level 2 support to customers in their own homes, Residential homes and Day centres. This is administering medication without the need of support or guidance from the customer.

On completion of this workshop you are then ready to continue with your workplace competency assessments. This half day medication refresher should be undertaken every 2 years.
The aim of this workshop is to enable staff to update and refresh their understanding of the safe handling and administration of medicines and their responsibilities required to administer medication at Level 2 and 3 under the West Sussex Medication Policy.
If you apply what you have learnt on this workshop you will be able to:

  • Recall the difference between general support medication tasks (Level 1) and administration medication tasks (Level 2)
  • Discuss the different routes medication can be administered and the relevant training that might be required to enable staff to administer these routes, including Level 3 Specialist or Healthcare tasks.
  • Examine what is a medication incident or error and what is your responsibility in keeping customers/residents safe
  • Recall the use of the ‘5 Rights’ and the 6th Right
  • Demonstrate skills to safely administer and record involvement with medication
  • You must have attended Medication Level 2 training with West Sussex County Council within the last 2 years. Please do not apply for this event unless you meet this criteria. Please book onto the Medication Level 2 event if you do not meet this criteria.
