This is the first of several e-learning packages to support care home staff involved in any aspect of medicines use. Staff should have previously undertaken basic administration of medicines competency training as appropriate to their care setting prior to taking this course. The course is broken down into nine modules (including an introductory module) which should be undertaken at approximately 1 to 2 monthly intervals so that learning from each module can be embedded into practice before you start the next one.
We are an NHS funded not-for-profit organisation that supports quality, optimised prescribing for patients. We produce evidence-based resources and tools for primary care commissioners, and provide a platform to share innovation across the NHS. Most of our materials are publicly available, however we also provide a range of data and intelligence tools, webinars and events for our subscribers. We also aim to engage with a broad range of stakeholders including patients and carer groups, the pharmaceutical industry and voluntary sector organisations.
