Safer Handling of Medication Training

This Safer Handling Of Medication Training course is aimed at staff who are responsible for the handling, administrating and disposal of medication within a care environment. Whether that be nurses, carers or community support workers.

The Safer Medication Handling Training will aim to improve delegates knowledge of the different types of medication, the various routes, the 7 R’s, errors and correct documentation.
