The third of our e-learning packages for care homes, builds on the content covered in the first two Medicines use in care homes courses.
The course is designed for all care home staff involved in medicines administration and covers the use of certain ‘high risk’ or specialist medicines that require specific consideration and/or administration techniques.
This course covers: Medicines and falls risk, Antipsychotic medicines in dementia, Administration of anticoagulants, Administration of methotrexate and other cytotoxic medicines, Administration of bisphosphonates and Administration of medicines used in Parkinson’s disease.
The course should take around 2.5 hours in total to complete, but please note that it is designed to be completed in stages and not finished in one sitting.
It includes six modules focusing on key topics, in addition to two case studies that will help apply learning to practice.
Quizzes at the end of each module will test understanding and recap on key learning points, and a pass mark of 70% is required in the final assessment to complete the course and receive a certificate.
