Course description

THE VIRTUAL MEDICINES ROUND



This medication training online module fulfills the requirement from CQC and NICE for staff to have an annual update of the skills and knowledge required to administer medicines.

Training objectives

ONLINE COMPETENCY ASSESSMENT



The Virtual Medicines Round tests a learner’s competence to select the correct medicine. We present them with a number of different medicines and the corresponding medicines chart. The systems asks them if they would administer this item? Some of the medicines are correct to administer, some are not.


The medicines that are not have mistakes such as:



  • The wrong client name, wrong strength, wrong form

  • The wrong drug, the wrong directions

  • Medicines that aren’t due yet

  • Medicines that have gone past their once opened or manufacturer’s expiry date

  • Medicines where the client has already finished the course

Learning outcomes

To be renewed yearly - 100% pass rate required
