Online Administration of Medicines to Children in Care – MED02L
Our online administering medication training course is aimed at staff working within a domiciliary or residential care setting in which the administration of medicines to children is required and therefore the need to safely administer medicine is a required skill set. 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.
This online training course is live-streamed using ‘Zoom‘. It’s the same great training achieving high levels of interaction and is still being delivered by a knowledgeable and experienced trainer. Where required all course materials are provided in advance of training, all you need is access to the internet and a suitable device (computer, laptop, I-pad or similar) to join in.
