Webinar from CQC and Skills for Care on Medicines from the regulatory perspective

Linked below is a recorded webinar from Skills for Care, delivered in partnership with CQC, that explores the regulations and best practices around managing medicines in care homes and domiciliary care settings.

People accessing care services often require support with their medication and organisations have a responsibility to ensure proper and safe use of medicines and require that staff responsible for the management and administration of medication are suitably trained and competent.

This webinar covers;

  • What does ‘good’ look like within the context of CQC regulation
  • Inspections
  • The key medicines risks in ASC and what good management of medicines incidents looks like
  • What questions CQC ask in the medicines section of the ASC provider information return and why
  • What good medicines care planning is
  • CQC resources
  • Skills for Care resources
