Supporting Medication in Social Care Settings - Workbook

This workbook is to complement ARC's Supporting Medication training materials. Once your in-house trainer has attended an ARC Supporting Medication Train the Trainer course they will be equipped to deliver the training to your staff. This workbook can be used to test the learners' knowledge on the course content, answering questions in the workbook relating to the knowledge Learning Outcomes of the City & Guilds unit 343 ‘Support the use of medication in adult care’ and unit 344 ‘Administer medication to individuals and monitor the effects’, from the Level 3 Diploma in Adult Care, which we offer through our Qualification centre.

It is also in line with Skills for Care and Development’s and Skills for Health’s National Occupational Standards (NOS) SCDHSC3122 and SFHCHS3 for Medication Knowledge and Understanding.

These new materials also include some of the information from our previous pack ‘Handling medication in social care settings’. This previous package was developed from a Department of Health-funded project which had initially focused on producing guidelines for staff handling medication in the learning disability sector. It was supported by a wide range of people including; Skills for Care, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, Pharmacists, CSCI (now the Care Quality Commission), service providers and people who access services. The result was a comprehensive package covering the knowledge needed to support individuals with their medication.

This training can be used to support unit attainment towards their Health and Social Care qualification or for Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Contact us for further information.
