Administration of Medication Training - in Schools
Time & Location
About the Event
At some point in their education many children will have a short or long-term medical condition that requires them to take regular medication. Schools and early years settings must have a policy and procedures in place for the administration of medication. This allows the child to attend school safely, parents feel supported and staff feel confident in their role. This course contains statutory and non-statutory guidance on the operation of such a system and the responsibilities of staff and parents
