An introduction to the purpose and structure of the course.
In this chapter, we list and describe the eight core principles that underpin the safe and appropriate handling of medicines in every care setting.
Policies and Procedures
In this chapter we cover: • Policies and procedures • What is meant by the term “Controlled Drugs” • The need to make special arrangements for Controlled Drugs • Administration of Controlled Drugs • Records for CDs • Disposal of CDs • Handling non-prescribed CDs
This chapter outlines the importance of correct disposal of excess or unwanted medicines and goes on to describe why the accurate recording of medicines is crucial in a social care setting and service.
In this chapter, we cover the importance of establishing an effective communication link with GP surgeries and pharmacies and discuss medicine volumes and stocks and how the various types of medicines should be correctly stored.
This chapter covers policies, procedures and best practice for the handling and administering of medicines within various care settings, including in individual homes and day care.
Help with Medicines
Safe administration of medicines means that medicines are given in such a way as to maximise benefit and to avoid causing harm. Whenever possible people in care settings should be responsible for looking after and taking their own medicines but some will be given medicines by care workers. This chapter covers the occasions when help with medicines is necessary.
