Level 3 Medication Awareness with Practical Competencies

As a health and social care worker, you will be called upon to administer medication from time to time. This course will increase your confidence in recognising the types of medication with which you will work in the future.

One of the biggest responsibilities that a health or social care worker has is administering medication to an individual. The field of medicine is vast, and it can be daunting to find yourself handling unknown labels and substances when somebody else’s wellbeing is at stake.  

This course is designed to give you the knowledge and the confidence to handle medication effectively and correctly in the workplace, and to identify any potential problems before they arise. Safe storage of medication and other associated issues are included. 

During the session, you'll cover:
Understand what is a drug, what is medication and why people take them
Consider the roles of others with the management of medication process
Discuss the task of administration and the need for a person-centred approach
Understand relevant law and best practice
Understand the 8 ‘Rights’ supporting the administration of medication
Discuss common errors and issues relating to medication
Be aware of useful sources of support
A practical competency assessment.


This full or half-day course comprises an engaging mix of activities with fellow learners (maximum fifteen delegates). You’ll be asked to complete a simple multiple-choice assessment after you take the course. You will receive a certificate once you have passed the assessment.
