Competency Assessment Manual

With the changing workforce and the changes to medication administration and the roles of registered nurses and trained non-registered staff, training and ongoing competency assessment for medication administration is vital.

Meditrax has developed a Competency Manual to assist not only in training but more importantly in ongoing assessment of staff that can be carried out in the workplace. Safe medication management and administration is crucial. The Meditrax Kit aims to provide you with suggested protocols when training staff to be competent in medication management. Oral/written questions are also offered as a guide to onsite competency assessments. The kit consists of:

  • Manual – background and instructions for 18 areas of medication administration including different routes of administration (eg respiratory devices, patches & insulin, eye drops etc)
  • Assessment questions
  • Policies & procedures
