Medication Management Outcomes

The primary objective of this session is to provide individuals with the knowledge they require to manage medication safely and confidently, to minimise the harm caused by costly errors.

Once staff have completed the Medication Management training course, they will understand the legislation surrounding medicines, be able to identify risks relating to medication management, recognise different drugs, and know how to respond to a major adverse drug reaction. Equipping staff with this knowledge is vital to patient health and safety; it could even save lives.

Some key areas that are covered in our medication management training session include:

  • The legislation surrounding medication management.
  • Medication documentation and record-keeping.
  • Risks relating to medication management.
  • Prescriptions.
  • Medication management reporting and escalation procedures.
  • Medication rights.
  • Different forms of medication including therapeutic medication.

Our Medication Management course is accredited by the CPD, and completion of the course provides formal recognition of your ability to manage medication confidently and to national standards.

Completing this training session gives individuals a sound understanding of how to safely manage and administer medication and protects employees, patients, and organisations from dangerous and costly errors or mistakes being made.

The skills and knowledge you learn during this course are transferable and many people find that the qualification improves their employability.

Your role and responsibilities once qualified

Once individuals have completed our Medication Management training session, they will be equipped with the skills and knowledge required to manage patient medication safely and confidently.

Some key responsibilities that individuals will be able to carry out once they have completed this training session include:

  • Manage patient medication according to the relevant legislation.
  • Store and dispose of medication safely.
  • Identify potential risks and complications that could arise from different medications.
  • Take confident action if a patient suffers an adverse reaction to a medication.

Explain the different types of medication available, including therapeutic medication.

Working with patient medication is a big responsibility and employees must be equipped with as much knowledge as possible to help them to carry out their role competently and to minimise errors.

Making an error when it comes to medication management can have serious implications on the patient’s health as well as being costly to an organisation and damaging to its reputation.

Here at CBAT, the Medication Management course that we run is short, affordable, and can be conveniently completed online. The benefits of educating your employees in Medication Management should not be underestimated as it can dramatically reduce the likelihood of an error being made when administering patient medication.
