The development of a new electronic prescribing and medicines administration (ePMA) system provides an opportunity to design training to support and promote safe medicines administration for its users. This course is designed to support the implementation and development of ePMA into daily practices. Based around optimising the inter-professional ward round this course will promote advanced knowledge on core prescribing and administration functions of the ePMA system. It aims to explore the potential non-technical barriers to effective management on the inter-professional ward round working using simulation. The course will also explore and develop new ways of working using the ePMA system and how this can contribute to enhance patient safety.
