We have a comprehensive audit tool enabling you to thoroughly inspect your medicines systems. Developed by our own expert (and ex-CQC) pharmacists, it will ensure you score highly during CQC inspections and that people using your service are protected against any risks associated with medicines.
On this half-day course, we will train you how to use the tool and provide you with a voucher code to download it for free (rather that the standard cost of £50).
Managers, supervisors and staff members who oversee the management of medicines in care homes, supported living, day centres and community settings
By the end of the course you will be able to demonstrate how to use the audit tool to inspect:
Medicines training and competency checks
Risk assessments for self-medicators
Medicines policies, paperwork and procedures
Storage of medicines
Learning and reporting from medication errors
Audit of medicines charts
Disposal of medicines
Cold storage and monitoring of medicines
Storage and recording of controlled drugs
In addition to the handout, you will be sent a free electronic copy of the audit tool with guidance notes.
