Course Aims

In the course of their work social care workers may support an individual with their medication.

As professionals they have a ‘duty of care’ to ensure that every individual is supported with their medication safely and with no error.

Medication is a mandatory training subject that must be completed before supporting any vulnerable individual, in a professional capacity.

This course is suitable for care staff working in care homes or organisations where they do not have to work remotely in the community.
