**Please note that workbooks can only be purchase by organisations whose trainers have attended our updated Supporting Medication in Social Care Settings for Trainers workshop and are teaching our updated materials.

Our Supporting Medication materials have been updated for 2020 to meet the knowledge learning outcomes of the City & Guilds units 343 ‘Support the use of medication in adult care’ and 344 ‘Administer medication to individuals and monitor the effects’, from the Level 3 Diploma in Adult Care, which we offer through our Qualification Centre.

It is also in line with Skills for Care and Development’s and Skills for Health’s National Occupational Standards (NOS) SCDHSC3122 and SFHCHS3 for Medication Knowledge and Understanding.

These new materials also include some of the information from our previous pack ‘Handling medication in social care settings’. This previous package was developed from a Department of Health-funded project which had initially focused on producing guidelines for staff handling medication in the learning disability sector. It was supported by a wide range of people including; Skills for Care, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, Pharmacists, CSCI (now the Care Quality Commission), service providers and people who access services. The result was a comprehensive package covering the knowledge needed to support individuals with their medication.
