Please use the followng as pointers/guidance ONLY - remember your answers will be checked, the following info was taken from suggested outcomes from a specification......
-----------
The main points of agreed procedures about handling medication e.g.: competent,
accountable, checks, signing, policies, risk assessment, monitoring, storage, disposal,
reporting, adverse reactions

Who is responsible for medication in a social care setting e.g.: qualified/competence
person, signing, safety, security

Why medication must only be handled following specialist training: incident, risk, knowledge, competence, implications, contraindications, knowledge of adverse reactions, signs/symptoms, action to take, reporting
