ABOUT THIS COURSE

Medication training in health and social care is perfect for those who administer medication. Organisations can be seriously affected by medication errors and they’re not as uncommon as you may think. More than 200 million mistakes are made every year in total. Which is why it is so vital for the safety of patients that social care staff are aware of different medications and the types, forms and classifications they possess.
