The term ‘restraint’ has negative connotations especially for the health and social care industry, made worse by some of the devastating images we have seen recently on the TV where members of the public have been forced to the ground and knelt on putting both their human rights and personal safety in jeopardy. Sometimes restraint is appropriate especially when working with clients who may become distressed. This course will help staff who may be required to restrain do so in a safe and ethical manner.
This Introduction to the Safe Handling of Medicines course will start by explaining the key terminology used when handling medicines. It then goes into detail about the roles of the people involved, some of the different groups of medicines, providing different levels of support to patients, infection control, label interpretation and much more.
