Medication Management Series - Module 2: Medication Form and Names / Routes of Administration

Medication management is a serious responsibility. Managing medications for multiple residents is much different than managing your own medications at home. It is critically important while performing medication administration that struct adherence to best practices and standards be followed. During this six-part series you will start at the beginning, learning or reviewing the process of medication management from receiving medications from pharmacy to documenting post-administration. 

This is the second of HealthCap's six-part series on Medication Management. In this module, we will discuss how medications can affect elderly residents differently than younger people and how to know who to reach out to when you have questions about medications and/or administration. We will discuss different routes of administration as well as as well as when and how poly pharmacy can become a concern for residents. 

Thanks for joining us and for doing your part to make medication administration a safe and effective process for your residents.
