Coronavirus Support

During these uncertain times, we can help you to prepare your changing workforce to be able to safely administer medicines in your organisation.

With the coronavirus outbreak meaning changes to frontline staff, organisations are having to change not only WHO they train, but HOW they train

To help you through the next few months, we have put together a clear and easy-to-follow Contingency Plan for organisations to download to help develop a workforce that is both competent and confident in administering medicines.

The 3-Point Plan set out in the document can be used to quickly and effectively train staff to be able to assist with and/or administer medicines in your organisation.

All courses are accredited by the RPS, endorsed by Skills for Care and tailored to the particular care setting staff will be working in.

 

By following the plan, you'll achieve the following outcomes...
