Code: BH/21/0497 Managing and Learning from Medication Errors (Adult Social Care) (Zoom) (EVENT FULL)

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

If you’re trying to reduce medication errors stop right now, you’re thinking about this the wrong way around. You want to reduce the harm that medication errors (or more correctly medication incidents) cause, and the only way you’ll do this is by learning from these incidents. With success, you’ll see your reported incidents go up, giving you more opportunities to learn. But the harm they cause should go down.

This course will teach you how manage, report and learn from medication incidents. It will enable you to provide the correct response to Safeguarding Teams and Care Quality Commission (CQC). It will enable you to reduce the chance of harm from medication incidents occurring by learning from them.

We can study actual medicines incidents that have occurred in your organisation in the case studies

In addition to the handout, you will be sent an electronic copy of our medicines incident form and investigation protocols.
