Administration of Medicines to Adults in Care – MED03

We offer an administering medication training course aimed at staff working within a residential or domiciliary care setting that need to safely administer medicine. This course considers Level 1 and Level 2 administration and is advised by the CQC that staff undertake the course annually to review knowledge, skills and competencies relating to managing and administering medicines.
