Medicines in Care Homes
The Medicines in Care Homes training pack has been designed to assist pharmacists in providing training on the management of medication to care staff working in residential care settings. The provision of training to care staff is a requirement of the National Quality Standards for Residential Care Settings for Older People in Ireland published by HIQA. The training can be used as an introduction to medicines for new care staff or as a refresher for existing staff. Each pack contains one pharmacist’s manual and six training workbooks for care staff.
