Overview.

This educational series will train care staff in the proper preparation and administration of medications. Quality of care, risk management and regulatory compliance implications loom large. And the ever-widening variety of medications, growing number of medications per resident and different routes of administration, make ensuring that care staff are sufficiently trained a critical challenge.

The series consists of two parts, each containing three modules. The modules average 15-30 minutes in length to accommodate the limited time available for staff training. Testing is provided for each module with 1.5 CE credits available on completion of Passing Medications Part 1 bundle and 2.0 CE credits upon completion of Passing Medication Part 2 bundle's cumulative testing. The series features professional narration, was filmed in a nursing facility, includes still shots and slides to reinforce important points and provides handouts for post-viewing reference.
