Event Details

At some point in their education many children will have a short or long-term medical condition that requires them to take regular medication. Schools and early years settings must have a policy and procedures in place for the administration of medication. This allows the child to attend school safely, parents feel supported and staff feel confident in their role. This course contains statutory and non-statutory guidance on the operation of such a system and the responsibilities of staff and parents.

‘The School and Public Health Nurses Association, SAPHNA, welcome this much needed course to support those working with children and young people with their medication needs whilst in education. This will promote safer practice for all’.

The purpose of the course is to help you understand:

The law:

  • The Children and Families Act 2014
  • Equality Act 2010
  • The Medicines Act 1968
  • Misuse of Drugs Act 1971
  • The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974

The principles for safe practice in administering medication

  • Developing and reviewing an individual health care plan (IHCP) for children with ongoing medical needs.
  • The administration of medication and self-management of medication by children.
  • The administration of injections, pessaries and suppositories.
  • The responsibilities of schools in relation to emergency medication.
  • The storage and disposal of medication in schools

The training requirements for schools including how to administer prescribed medicine and awareness training for relevant medical conditions.

Record keeping
