Topic outline

  • Safe Administration of Medication (SafeMed)

    These resources are designed to support you whilst carrying out your day to day duties with the public. You’ll find them useful if you’re preparing for assessment for a SVQ in Social Service and Healthcare (e.g. "Administer Medication to Individuals") or the Professional Development Award, "Administration of Medication".

    The smartphone resource is also intended to be a day to day reference tool but it shouldn’t be considered as a ‘training course’.

    • Web based learning modules

      This resource is a suite of three modules covering principles and good practice, understanding medication, and practical considerations when undertaking the safe administration of medication.
