Medication Training for the Care Industry - Nationally
Skills for Care have recently published guidance advising that:
"medicines training is 'essential training'"
CQC have backed up the message saying care providers are to:
"make every effort to ensure staff are competent, confident and skilled in providing safe care to the people using their service"
Skills for Care have said that:
"organisations must stop face to face training, and use digital training solutions instead"
We provide the theoretical knowledge to enable both carers and nurses to safely and effectively administer medication within the social care sector
We specialise in a select range of courses delivered to the highest of professional standards and pride ourselves on our customer service
All our courses are updated in line with the CQC Fundamental Standards and Skills for Care knowledge sets. They can be mapped to outcome 13.5 of the Care Certificate Standards and QCF units ASM 34 and HSC 3047. Our face to face courses are delivered by qualified, locally-based pharmacists or healthcare professionals. Our courses also meet the guidance from the Department of Health on the content of medication training for care staff.
We are monitoring the COVID situation constantly, we will always offer a ZOOM training session first and foremost as we feel this is the safest option for our staff and your staff.
We have also made this the most cost effective option for our customers!
We will endeavour to provide face-to-face training where ncessary following a risk assessment by both parties.
Our freelance trainers reserve the right to refuse a session if they feel the risks have not been fully addressed
