Our innovative approach
understand what makes our approach so innovative

Welcome to Prescription Training. We are a specialist provider of accredited competence-based medication training for carers and nurses and staff in social care, nursing sectors and schools.  We deliver blended medication training programmes that teach both the theory and practical skills needed to administer and manage medication with a strong emphasis on assessment. Our training has been shown to reduce medication errors by 30% (source: Hampshire County Council). Our training is accredited by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain.

Our approach is different. By focusing on the practical as well as the theoretical skills we ensure skills are transferred to practice. We assess the knowledge and practical competencies at key stages, with results succinctly communicated to managers. We provide follow up assessments for those needing more support after our workshops.

We provide distance learning for medication training, online medicines assessments and workshops which can be purchased individually or added together to provide a comprehensive medicines training solution. Our workshops operate throughout the UK with experienced pharmacist and nurse trainers. We provide medication training to 14 local authorities and many independent care service providers, both large and small.

We’re different because we only offer medication training, which allows us to be experts in this one area – it’s our focus, and our passion and our drive. All too often, giving “Medicines from memory” leads to medication errors (CHUMS Study. Barber N et al. Quality and Safety in Health Care, 2009). Don’t let this happen to your staff.
