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.

Code: BH/21/0877 Paediatric First Aid (2 days)

This qualification is for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to prepare the learner to develop the skills and knowledge needed to provide effective first aid to children and infants.

It is mandatory for those working with children from birth to five years. It is also suitable for those working with children from birth to puberty, including foster carers, schools and CVS practitioners.

There are seven Practical assessments, observed by the trainer throughout the course. There are two Theory assessment/multiple choice question papers. The pass mark is 11 out of 15 for Unit 1 and 18 out of 25 for Unit 2.

In addition, the trainer will carry out on-going assessment to assess the learners’ knowledge, skills and understanding related to the assessment criteria.

To assess competence and gain certification, the learner will need to demonstrate, without assistance from a third party, practical tasks such as CPR with the casualty on the floor to simulate a real-life situation.  If the learner is unable to carry out this practical assessment, for example because they cannot kneel, then they will not pass the course and will not gain the qualification. In exceptional circumstances, learners who are not able to kneel may be able to carry out the task from a standing position, and this is acceptable.

Each learner is provided with a course manual.

This qualification is valid for a period of 3 years. The learner needs to re-take the qualification before the certificate expiry date to remain qualified by attending a full two day/twelve hour Paediatric First Aid course.

The programme has been amended due to the Covid-19 outbreak and infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are detailed below in the additional information.
