About this module

The administration of medication is an extremely serious responsibility because, in the worse case scenario, incorrect administration can lead to the death of a person. Any deviation from what a doctor has prescribed, including a change of time for the administration of medication, is a breach of the person's rights and in some cases could be deemed as abuse or negligence.

This course has been developed to provide the learner with an understanding of the different types of medication and safe work procedures associated with medication management. It will cover the safe storage, disposal and administration of medication and what to do when a medication error or adverse reaction occurs.
