Welcome to Prescription Training

Welcome to Prescription Training. We are a specialist provider of accredited medication training to the social care, nursing sectors and schools.  We deliver blended programmes that teach both the theory and practical skills needed to administer and manage medication with a strong emphasis on assessment.

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, online assessments and workshops which can be purchased individually or added together to provide a comprehensive training solution. Our workshops operate throughout the UK with experienced pharmacist and nurse trainers. We provide medication training to 17 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.
