Although, HCPA does not endorse e-learning as quality training (click here for the Hertfordshire Blended E-Learning Policy). We have been advised of the below medication e-learning from PrescQIPP which you could use to enhance face-to-face training.

PrescQIPP

The Hertfordshire clinical Commissioning groups have funded the use of PrescQIPP E-learning package for Care Home staff across the County. As you will be aware E-Leaning is not considered good enough by itself and should be accompanied with Face to face training and monitoring of competencies to form a Blended Learning Package.

Medication E-Learning available for free via PresQUIPP
