Mediapharm’s High-Risk Medicines Safety Training for Pharmacy
Mediapharm’s High-Risk Medicines Safety Training for Pharmacy course is designed to help you recognise the risks associated with certain medicines so that you can give your patients safe and effective care that they can trust. This course takes around 1 hour to complete and is available on our training platform.
Why High-Risk Medicine Safety Training?
The bulk of pharmacy services involve the supply of prescriptions and Over The Counter (OTC) medicines. Errors in the supply of these medicines can have a huge impact on patient safety.
According to a 2018 Government report, 237 million medication errors occur in England each year as a result of working practices around prescribing, transition (between care settings), dispensing, administration and monitoring. A quarter of these led to harm and sometimes death.
Pharmacy has a key role to play in helping reduce medication errors, in particular around high-risk medicines. Managing high-risk medicines is part of a greater patient safety agenda and forms part of Clinical Governance and contract monitoring.
