Course aims and objectives

This online Safe Handling of Medication in Home Care training course aims to develop the awareness and competencies of health and social care staff working in community settings.

Learning outcomes

The learning outcomes of this online Safe Handling of Medication in Home Care training course are to:

  • To provide the learner with a clear understanding of the legislation and guidelines regarding the management of medication management,
  • Provide an understanding of the ordering, receiving, administering, storing and disposing of medicines safely,
  • Identify the processes and procedures for obtaining and receiving supplies,
  • Explain how drugs are administered and how problems may occur,
  • Describe how to store and dispose of drugs safely and securely,
  • State the principles underpinning the proper administration of medication, and
  • Outline the principal legal aspects of handling medicines.

Why is this course important?

The aim of this online Safe Handling and Administration of Medication training is to update or impart medication knowledge following your organisation’s policies and procedures. The course is essential for nurses and support workers who need to handle and administer medication daily safely.

Medicines management is a system of processes and behaviours that determines the way that patients and other service users use medicines. Getting medicine use “right” has the potential to not only improve patient outcomes but also contribute to patient safety.

It is estimated that up to £150 million worth of medicines are wasted unnecessarily every year within the NHS. Up to 50% of patients do not take the medication they have been prescribed.

Our medication management training courses are essential for registered nurses and support workers who need to handle and administer medication safely.
