Medication Management

Welcome to Medication Management - a digital learning resource to support Domiciliary Care Workers/Care at Home Workers and Support Workers within Domiciliary Care and Support Living settings.


Domiciliary Care Workers/Support Workers play a very important role within the community as they may be the first people to notice changes in the person/s they are supporting including: reactions to medication or that the supported person is having difficulty taking their medication.

This resource aims to support workers to;

  • develop their understanding of the principles of safe and effective medication administration.
  • promote the importance of their role in relation to medication administration.
  • support their learning and development and help them embed the Northern Ireland Social Care Council's Standards of Conduct and Practice into their day to day practice.

This digital learning resource has been developed by the NI Social Care Council in partnership with social care employers: (BHSCT, NHSCT, WHSCT (Pharmacy Lead), Leonard Cheshire and Byrson Care), RQIA and NICE.  The resource was funded by the Domiciliary Care Transformation Project and cricitally reviewed by Independent Trainer, Suzanne McStravick.
