Aimed at nurses and senior carers, this course will teach you how to reconcile medicines and transcribe medicines safely and accurately onto a medicines chart. This is a practical, assessed workshop. We will design this workshop around the actual medicines charts and other paperwork (e.g. discharge summaries) that you use. As part of this workshop, we can provide you with a medicines reconciliation and transcription policy and medicines reconciliation tool/assessment if needed.
