Did you know, that safeMedicate is the market leading resource for supporting the development and assessment of competence in drug dosage calculations?
With up to 40% of nurses' time spent on drug administration, it is essential that nurses remain competent in this patient safety critical skill.
safeMedicate is an accredited program that can support your revalidation journey within this domain of professional practice. On successful completion of one of our modules, you will receive a certificate of completion to support your revalidation portfolio of evidence.
You must have undertaken 35 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) relevant to your scope of practice as a nurse or midwife in the three year period since your registration was last renewed, or when you joined the register.
You must have prepared five written reflective accounts in the three year period since your registration was last renewed or you joined the register.
Our learning modules have been accredited by the CPD Standards Office and each module equates to a set number of CPD hours.
On successful completion, we will award you with a certificate of completion which you can keep within your CPD Portfolio and use as evidence towards your Revalidation. We'll also give you the opportunity to consider and document aspects of your learning which can then be used as a basis for one of the five reflective accounts you will also need to submit as evidence as part of the revalidation process.
I'm about to qualify as a registered nurse and although revlaidation is some years away yet, I like to plan ahead. The Essential Skills module has already prepared me for practice at the point of registration and I'll be using the Advanced Skills modules to achieve competence in more complex calculations.
safeMedicate has a validated curriculum that meets my continuing professional development needs and regulatory requirements for practice at the point of registration and beyond. It allows me to evidence the CPD hours and reflective accounts I'll need to revalidate.
We wanted to offer our nurses a flexible and trusted CPD solution that would meet the aims of reducing medication error and improving patient safety. safeMedicate was our first choice and is an integral component of our pre-employment testing measures and ongoing staff development programme.
