The aim of the Witnessing Medication module is to provide carers with sufficient
knowledge to enable the safe & effective witnessing of:
- checking medication in including different medication systems
- the witnessing of handwriting a MAR chart,
- witnessing a “verbal order” over the phone,
- witnessing the discontinuation of medication on a MAR chart
- witnessing the administration of controlled drugs.
All staff involved in medicines witnessing should ideally be trained fully on the safe handling of
medicines, however they should at least have been trained on the basics to enable them to witness accurately which is the purpose of this module.
The module is 2 and a half hours in duration, a workbook is provided and a certificate on successful
completion of the multi choice assessment.
