Why Safe Handling of Medicines Course right for you?

This comprehensive Safe Handling of Medicines Course is designed to equip you with the principles of safe handling, administration and storage of medicines.

This course will help you assess the importance of policies for record-keeping, label interpretation and the seven rights of medication administration.

The NHS makes hundreds of millions of prescribing errors and mix-ups which contribute to as many as 22,300 deaths a year, according to a major report commissioned by the Government. In addition to that, medication errors in the home are estimated to occur at rates between 2%-33% according to Patient Safety Network, 2018. Therefore, obtaining knowledge about the safe handling of medicines is indeed very crucial because even the most harmless medicines can cause side effects if taken incorrectly or in combination with other medications.
