The course is suitable for managers and senior care workers, to enable them to supervise or undertake the administration of medicines in accordance with current legislation. The course is fully assessed by a timed multiple-choice test, which validates the learning that has taken place. This enables confidence for managers and regulators that real learning has resulted from the study, which will enhance safe practice.
