'Medication Toolkit' Training course

This course, originally designed for and delivered to Norfolk County Council Adult Community Services, has been developed in addition to our ‘Safe Administration of Medicines’ course and aims to provide care staff with the additional skills and knowledge required to administer prescribed medication such as eye drops, lotions, creams, ointments, inhalers, nebulisers (including oxygen use), plus the application of basic dressings and management of small wounds (content dependant on length of course).   

The course is classroom based but also offers staff the opportunity for some practical-based work within the session.

Course delivery, classroom ‘observation’ and sign-offs will be carried out by Registered Nurses.


Staff to demonstrate an understanding of:

  • The safe application and appropriate use of (prescribed) lotions, ointments, creams and patches.
  • The safe administration of (prescribed) eye drops
  • The safe administration of (prescribed) ear drops
  • The safe administration of (prescribed) inhalers (i.e. Asthma management)
  • The safe administration of (prescribed) nebulisers (including oxygen use)
  • The safe application of basic dressings, basic wound care management and tissue viability

4 – 5  elements can be selected from the above for a 4 hour course, or all elements can be covered in a full day session (which can then include more practical and group work) dependant on your requirements.

Also included within this session is client consent/capacity, correct procedure, storage/returns to pharmacy and disposal, recording and reporting, potential risks and side effects.
