Medication Administration - Competency Assessors Workshop

Event Code AD 19/1603
Event Description This interactive one day workshop is for you, if you have the responsibility for assessing the competency of staff who administer medication to our customers.

See the NICE Guidance 2014 that states: ‘Care home providers should ensure that all care home staff have an annual review of their knowledge, skills and competencies relating to managing and administering medicines.’ This guidance applies to all care homes and day centres in Adult and Children’s services.

It will provide you with the skills and knowledge required, to enable you to carry out the observations, questioning and giving feedback to those having a competency check.
Please note: It would be advisable for all delegates to have updated their own Medication Administration training within the last 2 years.
