Code: BH/21/1420 Assessing Staff Competence to Administer Medication (Adult social care) 2 days (Zoom)

This course is aimed at managers and seniors that look at the process by which medicines are managed.

This practical workshop provides the knowledge, materials and skills to care providers to create and manage a formal system to assess staff competence.

Care Quality Commission (CQC) requires care providers to have a formal system to assess staff competence to administer medication. In this workshop we will assess your competence to administer medicines against a structured competence assessment checklist.

We will then assess you as competent to assess others (against this same checklist). You will be assessed through a combination of 1:1 direct observation with actual medicines, simulated medicines rounds, video assessments and a theory assessment.

Please note: you must complete and pass the pre-course elearning modules, two virtual sessions and summative assessment before being awarded the certificate of completion.
