Medication Competence in Community and Residential Settings - Who Assesses the Assessors?

A live online workshop which will ensure a high quality and consistent approach to the handling of medication across your organisation.

**NICE say that ‘**Care workers completing [Medication] training should be observed and supervised by a competent person in advance of administering medication for the first time. This should be an occupationally-competent person working for the provider, not an external trainer.
Managers, supervisors and assessors are responsible for judging the competence of their care workers’ ability to safely administer medication for people who use the service.’
Managing medicines for adults receiving social care in the community, March 2017

But what is an ‘occupationally-competent’ person? And what assessment skills do they need?

This workshop is aimed at managers, supervisors and assessors, equipping them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to assess the competence of others.

Places cost: £90 (ARC Members) | £120 (Non-ARC Members)

Active Support Bespoke Training and Consultancy
Active Support is a model of support which ensures that people are supported to participate in every aspect of their daily lives and to take the lead in functional and meaningful activities where staff become enablers not carers.

Services who have already been supported with the implementation of Active Support have said that the model has transformed the lives of people they are supporting, with them engaging in everyday activities such as shopping and cooking, and has also helped to reduce some behaviour that services find challenging.

Our bespoke Active Support consultancy ensures that your individual organisation’s requirements are explored and a programme of work is suggested which may include organisational readiness with the senior teams, training for support staff and managers, and Practice Leadership coaching theory and practice. Sessions can be delivered via Zoom/Teams or in-person depending on your requirements and can be delivered in the evenings or at weekends if required.

Discover more about our training and consultancy or contact us via email at to book your free initial consultation with our Active Support Lead, Christine Rose, where you can discuss your requirements and plan the best ways to introduce and implement Active Support within your organisation.
