About this course

Medication Awareness training in health and social care is perfect for those who administer medication. Organisations can be seriously affected by medication errors and they’re not as uncommon as you may think. More than 200 million mistakes are made every year in total, which is why it is so vital for the safety of patients that social care staff are aware of different medications and the types, forms, and classifications they possess. This online Medication Awareness training has been designed with all these features in mind.

Our Medication Awareness course will also teach learners how to administer and manage medication safely, the responsibilities as a care worker, the needs of the patient and the importance of record-keeping. Choose whether you want your staff to complete this Medication Awareness course via e-learning or webinar training. Upon successful completion of this online course, you will receive a downloadable and printable Medication Awareness training certificate.
