Why is medicine management important?

  1. In a service that provides care will ensure they are ultimately safe, effective and demonstrate that a high-quality service is being delivered and have taken the wishes and expectations of the person receiving the care into account.

  2. This will result in a consistent high standard of care which is compliant with local authorities and inspectorates in care.

The outcome

  1. Should be the best possible health outcomes for the individual and will enable close working relationships within the multidisciplinary team leading to further efficiencies within the health and social care system. Managers and team leaders who manage the competencies of staff administering medication should act in the best interests of their service user.

  2. They must know the therapeutic uses of the medicine to be administered, normal dosage, side effects, precautions and contraindications.

They must have considered

The dosage, method of administration, route and timing of the administration in context of the patient’s condition, co-existing therapies and meals and the knowledge and skills of the person they are assessing. Any discrepancies should be reported to the line manager immediately who will refer the issue to the most appropriate health professional.

Workers who require any additional training  

To undertake tasks identified as essential for specific individuals, should be done on an individual basis and shared in their plan of support. These tasks require to be within the boundaries of the professional role. It is not solely a mechanistic task to be performed in strict compliance with the written prescription of a medical practitioner, independent or supplementary prescriber; it requires thought and the exercise of professional judgment.

Methods of assessment:

It is good to use more than one method of assessment, as this gives a holistic approach and allows the person being assessed to show both their practical skills and theoretical knowledge and understanding of the task. You will be carrying out an observation initially but it may be that you will need to check knowledge evidence following the observation.

 

Evidence must be:

Valid – relevant to the standards for which competence is claimed Authentic – produced by the learner Current – sufficiently recent for assessors to be confident that the learner still has that same level of skills or knowledge Reliable – genuinely representative of the learner’s knowledge and skills Sufficient – meets in full all the requirements of the standards

 

Feedback: 

Should be factual and given in a calm manner. We should use the ‘feedback sandwich’ which we will look at in a moment. It is important that feedback is given at the time so that the person being observed knows how well they have done.
