Medication administration is an essential and key area of user/patient care. Medication can be dangerous when misused but when used effectively is a very powerful tool to alleviate symptoms and improve or prolong a person's life. Healthcare workers are not only responsible for the safe delivery of medication but also upholding dignity, encouraging independence and respecting choices the service user/patient makes. This is an excellent refresher course for any member of the healthcare team.
