Medicines Management in Care Homes
Attendees will gain the competencies required for giving medication to care home residents in accordance with the relevant standards and guidelines as set out by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and the Care Certificate.
Our experienced team of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians have an in-depth knowledge of care home policy, CQC medication requirements, NICE guidance and local policy. We conduct medicines management reviews, audit current service, undertake reviews of medication in conjunction with GPs and provide support and guidance for all residential and nursing homes.
Our training courses are comprehensive and suitable for staff from all care homes, including those registered to accommodate people with dementia and learning difficulties. As well as nursing and residential care home staff, the courses are also suitable for all care agency staff.
The ‘State of Care’ report, released by the CQC in October 2015, stated that in the area of adult social care: “Safety is our biggest concern – factors include poor medicines management. Medicines are not administered properly, and some are out of date and not stored properly.”
