Course Outline

The Principles of medication administration in schools course is aimed at anyone who may contribute to supporting children with medical conditions in schools, including maintained schools, academies and pupil referral units (PRUs).

This course will provide a sound background to medication use in schools, including assisting with specialist tasks such as giving insulin injections. However, it does not replace any specialist advice you may be given from specialist nurses, specialist training courses or being shown techniques by other health professionals who may work with the child. The course will, however, give you a great understanding of medical conditions, medications, the legal framework and guidance surrounding medication use in schools, plus equip schools to put effective systems in place to support individual children.
