Learning Outcome


Learn how to comply with safety measures and ensure that individuals are not exposed to the risk of adverse reactions, overdoses, or fatalities by taking this Safe Handling of Medicines course. It should never be forgotten that even with their life-saving properties, the vast majority of medication can be extremely harmful in the wrong hands or if they are used irresponsibly. You can use this valuable training to ensure that potentially dangerous substances are kept secure. Only those with the necessary access can freely take them as they are needed.       

This Medication Management tutorial presents ten educational modules that come complete with critical information about the storage and disposal of medications in expert and domestic use. After an introduction to UK legislation and the categorisation of medicines, you will be taught the best practices and procedures for handling medication in all environments. You will be shown how to check details with experts and patients, keep administration up to date, store products securely, dispose of substances, responsibility, and much more. Complete your medical awareness and learn how to manage all medicines meaningfully.    

Please note that the Safe Handling of Medicines course provides valuable and appropriate education for those that wish to work in a medical environment. However, it does not offer expert lessons to immediately work as a pharmacist or administer any form of medication. Always check with experts before performing any type of healthcare assistance or using unfamiliar medications.
