Administering Medication Blended Learning

This blended learning is for staff who are responsible for Administering Medication to people living in their own homes, Residential homes and Day centres.

The training is in 3 parts:

Pre-session work:

  • E-learning module
  • Workbook with activities to be completed. (The Workbook can be found attached to the e-learning module.)
  • This Three-Hour online webinar over Skype.

  • The training follows the West Sussex County Council Medication Policy.

    This is a new form of training: An interactive Skype session, supported by individual work before the session. You will need access to a laptop or Electronic Notebook to attend the webinar. The webinar session will go through the answers to the workbook and give you an opportunity to ask any questions and consolidate your understanding.

(It will take approximately 5 hours to complete the e-learning and workbook, it is recommend you break this into hour long chunks over a week.)
